CITY OF PASADENA ISSUES RED FLAG ALERT & PARKING RESTRICTIONS THAT BEGIN AT 3:00 A.M. SUNDAY, DECEMBER 29 UNTIL APPROXIMATELY 10:00 P.M. DECEMBER 29, 2013
PASADENA, Calif.--Pasadena FireChief Calvin E. Wells has directed the activation of Red Flag Parking Restrictions within the City of Pasadena in response to National Weather Service predictions.
Red Flag & Parking Restrictions begin at 3:00 a.m., Sunday, December 29, 2013 until further notice--at least until approximately 10:00 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013. The situation can change and a cancellation notice will be sent when the Red Flag conditions are over.
A Red Flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are expected. The weather pattern, 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.
With increased pedestrians (mostly visitors and tourists) and extra vehicles surrounding the Rose Bowl Stadium area, the public and all motorists are advised to be aware of their surroundings and to be aware of parking restrictions during the anticipated busiest day of activities and float viewing in the Arroyo Seco area leading up to the Rose Parade.
