Pasadena Lifts Red Flag Alert, Parking Restrictions

Published : Saturday, October 26, 2019 | 1:04 AM

A Red Flag Alert with parking restrictions activated Friday at 8 a.m. by Pasadena Fire Chief Bertral Washington was lifted at 7 p.m. Friday evening.

A City official thanked the public for their patience during the inconvenience.

“ We’ve seen what our neighboring jurisdictions have gone through the past couple days and it should serve as a reminder for our residents to always be prepared,” said spokesperson Lisa Derderian.

A Red Flag warning can be issued when critical fire weather conditions exist. This in combination with dry fuels can create extreme fire danger and/or fire behavior.

In order to allow for improved Fire Department access and resident evacuation, parking is restricted while Red Flag alerts are in effect, primarily on posted narrow and/or winding roads within Pasadena’s urban-wildland interface areas.

Derderian reminded residents to always be prepared for fire hazards.

“We have no winds at the moment, but due to the very dry humidity and all the fires happening in the areas around us we’re closely monitoring the situation and assisting with the other fires,” Derderian said earlier.
