Open House for Military Housing Concerns

An Open House to discuss housing and safety concerns for active military and spouses will be held 9-11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 25 inside the Bay Breeze Event Center ballroom. Squadron, Group and Wing Level Leadership will be in attendance to answer questions and hear concerns. Other groups in attendance will include Airman & Family Readiness, Medical and Legal. Limited children's activities will be provided for those in attendance. 

Below is a message from the 81st Training Wing Vice Commander, Col. Lance C. Burnett:

Testimony in Congress this week and several media reports have highlighted health and safety concerns related to conditions in military housing units. We take the health and safety of you and your families very seriously; this is a top priority for commanders at every level.

In response to these concerns, the Secretary of the Air Force and the Chief of Staff of the Air Force have directed commanders to conduct a review of military housing at every base. Before March 1, 2019, Keesler leadership will be contacting all active-duty residents living in privatized housing to address any health and safety concerns they have and will follow up with personal visits if requested. Once initial requirements are met, Keesler leadership will continue with the review to ensure all households have been surveyed. As an alternative to chain-of-command reporting, the 81st Training Wing will host an open house at the Bay Breeze Event Center next week. This event will be open to everyone and details will be widely disseminated as soon as possible.

During the forthcoming survey, you can expect the following questions to be asked to help identify immediate concerns:

1. Are you satisfied with the health and safety of your home?
2. Do you have any work requests regarding the health or safety of your home the maintenance team has not addressed to your satisfaction?
3. Do you have any other health or safety concerns with your home?

Health and safety items: excess moisture exposure and/or visible mold, infestation of pests, or other home health and safety issues (electrical outlets, smoke detectors etc).

If you have routine concerns about your home please contact Hunt Housing at (844) 224-5162, or http://www.keeslerfamilyhousing.com/. For issues not addressed by Hunt Housing, residents may bring their concerns to the Keesler AFB Housing Management Office (which is an Air Force function) at 228-376-8610 or 8609.

Your participation and feedback are essential. We understand that this may be inconvenient for some, and we thank you in advance for your participation in this effort to improve on-base housing.

Col. Lance C. Burnett,
Vice Commander, 81st Training Wing
