A team of NADMO officers in the Fanteakwa North District conducted a decongestion exercise in Begoro township on 16th July, 2019.
The team spearheaded by the District Director, Hon. Rev. Opoku Acheampong invaded the market to vacate the traders who have abandoned the market and encroached on the roadside. The intense trading activities on the roadside leads to congestion and also a contributory factor to the heaps of garbage deposited along the roadside.
They have on several occasions been cautioned on the dangers associated with trading by the roadside but the women, mainly foodstuff sellers have persistently thwarted efforts by NADMO and the District Assembly to put the situation under control.
In an attempt to avert accident and similar emergencies, the team embarked on this exercise to eject the traders and commercial vehicles who trade and load at the roadside aside.

A fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling, endangers the user (i.e., no escape route, smoke, explosion hazard, etc.), or otherwise requires the expertise of a fire brigade. Typically, a fire extinguisher consists of a hand-held cylindrical pressure vessel containing an agent which can be discharged to extinguish a fire. Fire extinguishers manufactured with non-cylindrical pressure vessels also exist, but are less common.
There are two main types of fire extinguishers: stored-pressure and cartridge-operated. In stored pressure units, the expellant is stored in the same chamber as the firefighting agent itself. Depending on the agent used, different propellants are used. With dry chemical extinguishers, nitrogen is typically used; water and foam extinguishers typically use air. Stored pressure fire extinguishers are the most common type. Cartridge-operated extinguishers contain the expellant gas in a separate cartridge that is punctured prior to discharge, exposing the propellant to the extinguishing agent. This type is not as common, used primarily in areas such as industrial facilities, where they receive higher-than-average use. They have the advantage of simple and prompt recharge, allowing an operator to discharge the extinguisher, recharge it, and return to the fire in a reasonable amount of time.
Do you know how to use the Fire Extinguisher? Are you ready to learn?
A training program was carried out today at the Regional Secretariat to take staff members of NADMO through the use of the Fire Extinguishers.
We welcomed the Minister of Interior, Mr Ambrose Dery and his entourage to the NADMO Eastern Regional Secretariat this morning with great enthusiasm.
It is the first time a sector minister has singled out the secretariat for such a great encounter, depicting how important the dynamic role of the organisation is in strengthening and ensuring a much more resilient internal structure across the nation.
The Minister recognizing this, has promised to help improve working conditions by assisting in dealing with our challenges not just at the secretariat but across the entire organisation adding that work is ongoing to synchronize NADMO's Early Warning Systems with that of all relevant institutions within the sector to ensure a standardized and improved delivery.
We are very thankful for the visit and are looking forward for the benefits hereafter.
