London Fire Brigade is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
The virtual Hazard House tool is provided and hosted by a third party. It cannot be navigated using only a keyboard, and the content cannot be read using a screen reader. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.1.1 (keyboard) and 1.1.1 (non-text content).
By the end of 2020 we will ensure that the information provided by the virtual Hazard House tool is provided elsewhere on the website, in an accessible format.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. However, we have spent time improving the accessibility of all our PDFs – to ensure they have titles, a set language, and bookmarks.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
It’s possible that you will find an occasional PDF that has not yet been fixed. If that’s the case please let us know so we can take action.
