A statement issued in Kumasi and signed by the Deputy Ashanti Regional Fire Commander, Paa Kwasi Adutwum, warned against the misuse of electricity, electrical gadgets and Christmas trees with fairly light decorations.

It cautioned the people, particularly, farmers not to set fires without any control measures – presence of fire volunteers, creation of fire belts and suppression means.

The statement also expressed concern about phony emergency calls by some unscrupulous elements in the society and asked that these must stop.

It called on all to back the fire fighters in their efforts to ensure that the Christmas festival and harmattan season passed off without any incident of domestic, industrial or wildfire.

The GNFS announced plans to step up fire safety education in schools, markets, worship centres and work places during the period.
