New £30 million alarm system fund announced
Tuesday 2nd of February 2021
The government has announced a new £30 million fund to pay for the costs of installing an alarm system in buildings with unsafe cladding.
Common Alarms systems will enable costly Waking Watch measures to be replaced in buildings waiting to have unsafe cladding removed.
The fund builds on recently updated guidance published by the National Fire Chief’s Council (NFCC) on buildings that change from a ‘Stay Put’ to a ‘Simultaneous Evacuation’ fire safety strategy.
