 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. 

Additional background information may be found at:  http://cityofpasadena.net/Fire/Red_Flag/ including where the gateway signs are posted.
