In this regards, officers of the service are visiting homes, schools, markets places and other public institutions to sensitize members of the public on fire safety regulations and as well conduct risk assessment on some of these public structures.
The Volta regional chief fire officer, Daniella Mawusi Sarpong disclosed to journalists at the end of a community sensitization programme, that the command has also set up a special task force tasked to keep a 24 hour surveillance on key installations such as markets and other public buildings.
The task force, she noted has also been replicated in all 20 operational districts of the service across the region.
Though some regions have recorded major fire outbreaks in homes and public places such as markets and schools this month, outbreaks in the Volta region are mostly bush fires, most of which the personnel of the service have responded to swiftly.
Not withstanding , the regional commander said anti-bush fire campaigns and volunteers have been launched in all the district to complement the efforts of the fire officers in curbing fire outbreaks during this period.
Assistant chief fire officer, Danilla Sarpong further called on the general public to on high alert against fire outbreaks to ensure their safety.
