Gates Fire District is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone.
While we strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are continuously working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring our website to the same level of overall web accessibility.
Should you experience any difficulty in accessing or viewing areas of the site or if you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site – please don’t hesitate to contact us by clicking here.
