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.
