Website Accessibility Policy

This accessibility policy was approved by the Ridgway Fire Protection District board of directors
on April 15, 2024.
Ridgway Fire Protection District is fully committed to providing accessible facilities, elements,
and channels of communication to all members of the public. As part of this
commitment, Ridgway Fire Protection District has a policy of providing an accessible website
compatible with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) and
commercial screen reading software. All features of the website are coded to
allow individuals with vision and other impairments to understand and use the
website to the same degree as someone without disabilities. We welcome
feedback and can often resolve issues in a timely manner if they arise.
If you need any special assistance or accommodations, please contact our
accessibility officer or call us at (970) 626-5311.

Compliance Procedures and Reports

In addition to annual testing with users with a wide range of disabilities and
coding our website to WCAG standards, Ridgway Fire Protection District regularly scans its
website to ensure ongoing compliance, and makes timely changes to any
inaccessible changes, if any are found.
