Fire officers onboard the tender who sustained minor injuries were sent to Duayaw Nkwanta Government Hospital for treatment have been discharged from the Duayaw Nkwanta Government Hospital.
DO3 Simon Agyei Boamah on the other hand urged motorists to co-operate with the GNFS to fight the incidence of fire outbreaks by abiding with the Service’s preventive measures.

He called for the enforcement of laws on the usage of serene in the country to facilitate the work of Fire Service personnel, security Agents, and Ambulance operators.
