Update; Public Notice!
In reference to the loaded fuel tanker that caught fire on the Accra-Kumasi Highway (N6) at Nsutam near Paradise Rest Stop, the Ghana National Fire Service crew has efficiently managed to douse the fire, cleared the debris, and washed that section of the road for safe use by all motorists.
As a result, the Kyebi MTTD Accident Prevention Squad (APS) has opened the road for all motorists.
We therefore take this opportunity to thank the Ghana National Fire Service crew for their quick response, as well as all motorists for their patience.
Meanwhile, we urge all vehicle owners, particularly those who carry hazardous goods, to continuously service and maintain their vehicles, equip their vehicles with approved fire extinguishers which are in good working order, and avail their drivers to vehicular fire management training periodically.
