  1. Elements of fire protection that can minimize loss of life and property include use of non-combustible building materials, use of fire-resistive building assemblies, installation of automatic detection devices and sprinklers, electrical safety and development of improved firefighting techniques.
    I think the government should implement a law/policy for every existing building (eg. Markets, homes, schools, hospitals, industries, offices, etc) in Ghana to be upgraded for fire safety. Building owners/occupants should be required by law to install automatic fire sprinklers, fire alarms, fire extinguishers, and Arc Fault Detection Devices (AFDDs) in their buildings. Automatic fire suppression systems control and extinguish fires without human intervention. When fires are extinguished in the early stages, loss of life is minimal since 93% of all fire-related deaths occur once the fire has progressed beyond the early stages.
    People should be encouraged to paint their buildings with fireproof paint, and use fire-partitioning materials in their buildings (examples of fire partitions are firewalls, fire-rated doors, fire resisting ducts or dampers, fire rated ceilings, etc).
    Only certified electricians must be permitted to wire buildings, the government should implement electrical safety education/ fire safety education on our televisions stations as well as various radio stations.
