Member of Parliament (MP) for the Essikado-Ketan Constituency in the Western Region, Joe Ghartey, has praised the development of fire training schools in Ghana under President Nana Akufo-Addo’s administration as remarkable.

He noted that since independence, Ghana had only one fire training school until President Akufo-Addo took office in 2017.

“Since assuming office, President Akufo-Addo has overseen the establishment of three more fire training schools, and the government is about to start a fourth one,” he said.

Joe Ghartey made these remarks at the celebration of International Firefighters’ Day on May 3, 2024, in the Western Region.

The Firefighters’ Day celebration took place at the Western Regional headquarters of the Ghana National Fire Service in Fijai.

He informed the gathering that “plans are far advanced to acquire land for the establishment of a specialized training facility for the Fire Service at Essikado.”

“These developments are remarkable and represent a quantum leap in the provision of training infrastructure for the Ghana National Fire Service.”

Joe Ghartey emphasized that this achievement is yet another reason for Ghanaians to appreciate the NPP administration and vote for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

He highlighted that from 1957 to 2017, Ghana had only one fire training school.

However, in the past eight years, three additional schools have been established, with a fourth soon to be inaugurated.
