He believes the above interventions would reduce the response time to emergencies and as well enhance proximity of fire fighters to the community. 

ASO I Ayim used the opportunity to appeal to the public to support the Fire Service with vehicles, motorbikes, and bicycles. 

“A well resourced Fire Service is a catalyst for an enhanced Public Safety,” he said. 

He appreciated efforts of his officers and sister Services in combatting fire in the region and honoured the memory of ADOII Joseph Baidoo, who died during a rescue operation at Gomoa Oboasi.
