Be Aware of Red Flag Warnings

 On days of extreme fire danger, parking restrictions on Pasadena’s hillside streets are put in place to give residents a clear path to evacuate and fire crews plenty of room to mobilize in the event of brush fires.

You can sign up for red flag parking notifications at www.cityofpasadena.net/fire/red_flag .  You’ll read about the red flag warning system and be invited to register for notifications through the Pasadena Local Emergency Alert System (PLEAS). Using the numbers and addresses you provide, the system will automatically call or e-mail you during red flag conditions and other potential emergencies.

On red flag days, large signs are opened in strategic spots leading into potentially affected areas. Find a list and map on the website. Closed and out of sight on typical days, the eye-catching, red-and-white signs are visible whenever there is extreme fire danger to let people know red flag parking restrictions are in effect.
