Accessibility

The Service is committed to understanding and being responsive to the diverse needs of our communities. We want everyone to be able to receive our important safety messages, find out about the Service and apply for jobs leading to a rewarding career with us. Our commitment to fulfilling the General and Specific duties placed upon us by the Equality Act 2010 and also meets the statutory requirements set out within the Act. We want everyone who visits the Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

With that in mind, we use the ReciteMe assistive toolbar on our website. You can view this and use the toolbar by clicking on the yellow accessibility button at the very top of the page.

Once clicked, the toolbar is revealed and a wide range of options become available so you can access the information in a way that suits your needs. This includes changing colours, font size and type, highlighting text that can be read aloud and translating text into a wide range of languages, many of which can be spoken aloud. You can find out more with the ReciteMe user guide.

We hope that this feature is easy to use and means you can access all of the information you require.
