Accessibility for Emergency Services

Emergency services including ambulance, fire, and police are often the first point of contact in an emergency so they need to be completely inclusive to ensure everyone can access vital support when they most need it.

Users Face Digital Barriers on Emergency Services Websites

Most of us take access to emergency services for granted, but it’s not that simple for those who struggle with traditional methods of communication or face online barriers.

In a study, 71% of people said that they left a website they found hard to use. For emergency services this cannot be the case, vital safety information could mean the difference between life and death. Making emergency services websites accessible is an excellent way to support the vulnerable to access vital information online.

Why you Should Provide Online Support in the Emergency Services Sector

Support the Vulnerable
Those who are vulnerable may end up in a dangerous situation during an emergency if they cannot access the information they need.
Employer of Choice
Being inclusive sets you apart as an employer of choice. Higher staff satisfaction scores and reduced turnover rates will increase the pool of candidates who want to interview, work, and stay with you.
Enhanced User Experience
Assistive technology allows users to overcome barriers, allowing them to digest online content in a way that works for them.

Let us show you how easy it can be.
