CITY OF PASADENA ISSUES RED FLAG ALERT & PARKING RESTRICTIONS BEGINNING AT 9:00 P.M. TONIGHT
Pasadena Fire Chief Calvin E. Wells has directed the activation of Red Flag Parking Restrictions within the City of Pasadena in response to National Weather Service predictions.
Beginning Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. until further notice
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://cityofpasadena.net/Fire/Red_Flag/ including where the gateway signs are posted.
