Mr Nuhu Gibri, Oti Regional Director, Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) has said human resource development has become a cardinal component in the successful implementation of Service organisational policies.
He said the Service is therefore determined to enhance the capacity of its personnel to reflect its mandate as a professional fire fighting and management institution charged to effectively protect life and property.
Mr Gibril made the remarks at an in-service training for personnel of GNFS in its Municipal and Districts in the Oti Region.
The training was to ensure that personnel were abreast with best practices in road traffic collision strategies, security intelligence, and discipline in the core mandate and jurisdiction of the service.
He said it was also to equip the personnel with the requisite knowledge and skills that would enable them "apply the transformed skills to their operations to modernise the value of service delivery to the public in the protection of life and property.
" The Commander said with the training, personnel operations would be enhanced in the areas such as fire safety, emergency response, rural fire, maintenance culture, collaboration with stakeholders, sustenance of cooperate image branding, security alertness and performance of other special assignments in the interest of the social well being of society.
The personnel were taken through joint counter-terrorism interoperability, road traffic collision (RTC), and operations of fire police brigade.
Participants lauded the in-service training and requested it be regular towards raising standards and their efficiency.
