Nadmo educates school children on disaster management.
The National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) has appealed to the Ghana Education Service to open up NADMO offices in secondary schools to educate and sensitize them on disaster management.
Mr. Seth K. Kissi, the Ga East NADMO Director said this when he briefed newsmen in conjunction with the Ghana National Fire Service (GNS), the Ghana Police Service, Ghana National Ambulance Service and the Traditional leaders on this year’s International Disaster Day for Risk Reduction (IDDR) with the searchlight on Ghana mainly due to an upsurge in disasters emanating from rampant fire outbreaks and flooding at the Kwabenya Community Senior High and Technical School today.
He said if the culture of tree growing was nurtured among the children, they would grow to take it up and contribute to disaster prevention.
Mr. Seth K. Kissi attributed the high rate of domestic fires in the country to the use of old and faulty cylinders with fridges and other electrical gadgets in the same kitchen and reminded them to put their cylinder regulators off after cooking.
He appealed to market women who cook to endeavor to quench their fire properly before leaving and advised them to put off their electrical gadgets during power fluctuation.
