Mr. Speaker, it is a
Mr. Speaker, gone were the days where we just sent a facility to an area which may not be very useful or productive. I indicated earlier in this House, sometime this year that there were high-risk regions, districts, et cetera. So when we get the equipment -- [Interruption.] When I say high-risk areas, I mean areas which are very prone to disasters and fire outbreaks, et cetera.
When we have this facility as a country, we should be able to map the country and find out -- if we think that at the end of the day, having regard to the statistics and the reports that we have, Kintampo District is one of the high-risk areas as far as fire is concerned, certainly, they will be considered. But it will be graduated in such a way that, places like Kumasi, Tema, Accra, those urban areas and other areas where we have common fire outbreaks, sometimes, 10, 20, 50 in a year, they will take precedent over other areas where they may have one or two in a year.
So, yes, we will do that assessment, and Kintampo would benefit if they fall within. But at the end of the day, it is the commitment of government that every district, the 170 districts that we have in the country should have a fire tender.
