The Duayaw Nkwanta Traditional Council has expressed immense joy over the completion of a new Fire Service training school in the community.

Speaking at the commissioning of the facility on Tuesday, March 26, 2024, the Acting President of the council, Nana Boakye Bonsu, expressed the joy and gratitude of his people to President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia. He also commended the government for making their dream of having such facilities in the area possible.

“Indeed, today is a great day for our Municipality and the Traditional Area. The reason is that the dream and concept of this wonderful project that we are witnessing today, was initiated and conceived by wonderful persons like the late Nana Boakye Tromo III, Omanhene and President of the DNTC,” he said.

Facilities at the training school include dormitory blocks for men and women, classroom blocks, administration blocks, as well as modern training equipment such as hydraulic platforms to reach the 16th floor, to fight fires and effect rescue operations.

Before assuming office in 2017, Ghana had only one Fire Service training school, located in Accra. About two months ago, Dr. Bawumia commissioned the nation’s second Fire Service Training School in Wungu, in the North East Region.
