Pasadena Fire Chief Bertral Washington has directed the activation of Red Flag Parking Restrictions within the City of Pasadena in response to National Weather Service predictions.
A Red Flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are expected. This in combination with dry fuels could create extreme fire danger and/or fire behavior. In order to allow for improved Fire Department access and resident evacuation, parking is restricted on posted narrow and/or winding roads within Pasadena’s urban-wildland interface areas.
A cancellation notification will be sent when conditions change.
Additional background information may be found at: http://ww5.cityofpasadena.net/fire/red-flag-parking-condition/ including where the gateway signs are posted.
