To help us make the London Fire Brigade website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible for people with disabilities, and more user friendly for everyone. This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS.
The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen, and agreed, Level AA as the target for the London Fire Brigade website. London Fire Brigade website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.
We've worked hard on the London Fire Brigade website and believe we've achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. All templates were checked manually for keyboard navigation, hover states and some colour contrast tests that couldn't be picked up by automated tools. Otherwise, automated tools were used to aid the necessary checks needed and speed up reporting of potential issues.
As we add more content to the site we'll strive to maintain the Level AA accessibility. If you do find any content that you feel could be improved, let us know. We always welcome feedback that will improve the experience for users.
