The Young Executive School in Kasoa in the Awutu Senya East Municipality has supported the Ghana National Fire Service in the enclave with an undisclosed amount of money to buy a brand-new fire hose for the fire tender vehicle, which has become faulty.
Additional monies were also donated for maintenance work.
According to Assistant Divisional Officer, Gregory Joseph Martin in charge of Fire Safety, the faulty fire hose made it difficult for them to douse fire anytime there was an emergency.
He said efforts had been put in place to ensure that the temporary hose is used until the kind gesture by the Managing Director of the Young Executive School came through.
According to the In-Charge of Fire Safety for Awutu Senya East, the gesture will help them deliver on their core mandate of ensuring a fire-free society in Kasoa.
Speaking to Citi News after receiving the undisclosed amount of money, leadership of the Service led by Gregory Joseph Martin urged other benevolent individuals to follow in the footsteps of the Young Executive School since government cannot do it alone.
“Our core mandate is to make Kasoa fire-free and we will go to any length to ensure that we are successful in that direction and I believe that is the reason we approached benevolent individuals in the Municipality like the founder and owner of the Young Executive School to support us in purchasing a brand-new fire hose to help us deliver on our core mandate. He also gave us additional money for the maintenance of the fire tender, and we appreciate his efforts,” Gregory Joseph Martin told Citi News.
The Managing Director of the Young Executive School, Francis Okyea-Hene, while presenting the undisclosed amount of money to the Service, indicated that he was touched by the plights of the service after he was approached for support.
He also urged other benevolent individuals to support in that directive and enable the Fire Service to deliver on its mandate.
