Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.
The Equality Act 2010 states that all public sector organisations should take proportionate steps to meet the needs of, or redress any disadvantage likely to be suffered by individuals because of a protected characteristic. Due to this, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service is continuously looking to improve user experience for everyone visiting and accessing information through our website.
We have considered the usability of the website for people with disabilities and included facilities that will help accessibility for people with cognitive and visual impairments. However, the facilities available will also enhance the usability for non-disabled users.
Whilst Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If you experience any difficulties whilst using the website, please contact us.
