‘Major weaknesses’ found in fire safety at army barracks

‘Major weaknesses’ found in fire safety at army barracks
Posted 10th January 2019

A leaked report has highlighted that that this is a very serious issue!

Tory MP and former army officer Johnny Mercer said that 'soldiers are living in barracks that are not fit for animals'

The Defence Safety Authority annual report revealed that 373 fires have been reported across properties owned by the Army, Navy & Air Force in 2017-18. Referring to the leaked report findings it noted 'the apparent disinvestment or lack of priority afforded to fire safety across our infrastructure is being mirrored in the ambivalence of the very people it is there to protect. 

Until 'major weaknesses' are remedied there remained a strong likelihood of a fire resulting in 'significant loss of life, loss of capability and damage to the MoD's reputation'.

 

Simple words from Libben are - 'Protect those who protect us!'
