CITY OF PASADENA ISSUES RED FLAG ALERT & PARKING RESTRICTIONS THAT BEGIN AT 2:00 A.M. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 2014 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
PASADENA, Calif.--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.
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-wild land interface areas. Illegally parked cars are subject to ticketing and/or towing.
