Accessibility

The Derbyshire Fire & Rescue website is committed to providing accessible websites for their visitors. This accessibility statement describes what we have done to make our website accessible.

Web Accessibility Statement

We’re constantly working to make the DFRS website as accessible and usable as possible.  In order to do this we aim to meet the following requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (known as WCAG 2.1) are an internationally recognised set of recommendations for improving web accessibility.  They explain how to make digital services, websites and apps accessible to everyone, including users with impairments to their vision, hearing, mobility, thinking or understanding.

  • Our aim is to meet all priority 1 requirements of the W3C WCAG 2.1.
    Meeting this standard is commonly known as Level A compliance.
    "Priority 1 - A Web content developer must satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it impossible to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint is a basic requirement for some groups to be able to use Web documents."
  • Our aim is to meet all priority 2 requirements of the W3C WCAG 2.1.
    Meeting this standard is commonly known as Level AA compliance.
    "Priority 2 - A Web content developer should satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it difficult to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint will remove significant barriers to accessing Web documents."
  • We also aim to meet as many priority 3 requirements of the W3C WCAG 2.1 as possible.
    Meeting this standard is commonly known as Level AAA compliance.
    "Priority 3 - A Web content developer may address this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it somewhat difficult to access information in the document. Satisfying this checkpoint will improve access to Web documents."
