FIRE RETARDANT TO BE SPRAYED AROUND ROSE BOWL STADIUM

 

Brush areas surrounding the Rose Bowl Stadium will be treated with the wildland fire retardant Phos-Chek on Thursday, July 2.

The Pasadena Fire Department will take this proactive approach to diminish potential hazards during the Fourth of July holiday and into the summer season.

Fire retardant is one of the main tools firefighters use as a preventive measure and to contain fires in untreated areas.

Phos-Chek helps keep trees and grassland from burning. Its main ingredients are phosphates and fertilizers that prevent the ignition of fire and assist in regrowth of areas after a fire has been extinguished.

For more information call (626) 744-7276.
