The Los Angeles County Fire Museum, located in the Mayne Events Center, is fully accessible. There are accessible parking spaces located behind the Museum and in the parking structure across the street.
The Los Angeles County Fire Museum is committed to the universal accessibility of information contained on its website (Website). The design of the Website is optimized to ensure broad readability and usability, which include accessibility criteria and features for people with disabilities, so they may be able to see, understand, navigate, interact, and contribute to the Website effectively. The utilization of new technologies enhance the usability of our website.
The majority of the information presented is compliant with Section 508 of the United States Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (together, Guidelines). As we expand all aspects of the Museum, both on ground and online, our website is growing fast with various team members adding to the different sections. Our Collections area is expanding quickly with hundreds of archival photographs being added. We are working to keep up with the Alt Text and Photo Descriptions. Our volunteers are now working through our website to update and provide a fully ADA compliant site so that all or our fans may enjoy our information. As this will take a bit of time, please contact the Webmaster (please use the Contact Us form) with any questions or concerns.
Also, the Website contains links to third-party websites and features that may not be in compliance with the Guidelines. Some existing content may meet only the minimum required compliance standards. This will be resolved as departments and others update their existing websites and continue efforts to monitor and maintain acceptable compliance levels. However, this may not include third party software/tools, search engines, widgets, Add Ins, APIs, etc. which the Museum does not maintain or control.
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
The Website pages are designed with style sheets that allow a consistent, uniform appearance of headings and body text. This design feature also enables some browsers to override the Website style sheets with their own, thus providing content that is easier viewed by those who have visual impairments.
The background and foreground colors on the Website pages provide sufficient contrast to be viewable by someone having color deficits.
