CITY OF PASADENA ISSUES RED FLAG ALERT & PARKING RESTRICTIONS BEGINNING AT 6:00 A.M WEDNESDAY MARCH 12, 2014
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 Wednesday, March 12, 2014 AT 6:00 a.m. until approximately 6:00 p.m. March 12
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.
