AFF reassures families of fire safety in multi-storey SFA

Following the tragic incident at Grenfell Tower in London, AFF has approached DIO on families’ behalf to clarify whether multi-storey SFA features any external cladding, which would potentially present a fire risk.

Ensuring your safety
We are able to report that CA has confirmed to DIO that multi-storey buildings are predominantly brick construction. The external wall insulation used on recent energy efficiency upgrades to military housing has also been confirmed as meeting all relevant building and fire regulations.

DIO has reassured us that a full review will now be carried out of all non-habitable areas such as stairwells, plant rooms and communal areas, to ensure the safety of the Army families living there.

Contact AFF
If you are at all concerned about safety in your SFA, contact CA directly on 0800 707 6000 or contact AFF’s Housing Specialist Cat Calder at housing@aff.org.uk
