The Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management has endeavoured to conform with the New Zealand Government Web Standards for Accessibility and Usability.

Accessibility features

Our focus has been to ensure, for example:

  • Appropriate colour contrast between foreground and background colours of images and text that are core Get Ready navigation controls and content
  • Keyboard navigation of site menus and form elements
  • Alternative text descriptions of images and pictograms
  • Use of plain English
  • Clear information about hyperlinks to external websites.

Contact emergency.management@dpmc.govt.nz if you have any concerns or suggestions for improving the accessibility of information on the Get Ready website.
