According to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of GIFEC, Mr Kofi Attor, the computers will assist in information gathering and also enable the service to  be abreast of the modern trends in firefighting.

Mr Attor was speaking at the inauguration of the GNFS Information and Communication Technology (ICT) laboratory at the GNFS headquarters in Accra.

He said for the GNFS to function effectively, there was the need to make use of modern technology.

The CEO said the idea was not just to supply institutions with computers but also to encourage them to make maximum use of the equipment.

The Acting Chief Fire Officer,Brigadier General J.B.E. Guyiri, said the computers from GIFEC had been distributed to some of the GNFS stations in the regions and ,  including Wa, Nandom and Ho.

He said considering the daily occurrences of fires and road accidents, the ICT laboratory  would facilitate rapid communication and information gathering for immediate responses.

“Once ICT is well structured in an institution, carrying out activities becomes easier and faster,” he said

He urged all the officers to make good use of the ICT laboratory in order to achieve its intended purpose.
