Red Flag Days in Los Angeles

While we are not under "red flag" warnings right now in Los Angeles, current weather patterns point to more in the coming days.

Recently, Red Flag Parking restrictions were instituted in all hill and mountain sections of LA County City. (See comments below - D) It seems to be taking a while for everyone to become familiar with these new restrictions and fire equipment still having difficulty reaching some locations. (See Metroblogging LA's forecast: More Red Flag Days coming!)

On a side note, I realized I needed to be aware of Red Flag alerts, even though I don't live in the hills, as I have many clients who do. I am usually required to park on the street at these homes and during a Red Flag Alert, I would not be able to do so. You might run into similar problems when visiting friends and family who live in the hills.

There are many resources you can call upon to stay aware or Red Flag warning and their status:

LAFD's Red Flag info site with web, email and RSS notifications
National Weather Service
Dial 311 for the LA Citywide Services Directory
Local newspapers, television and radio outlets

Mr. Welch:

Thanks for helping us share concerns regarding wildfire danger in Southern California.

As a small technical matter, the Red Flag Parking Restrictions are applicable within only the CITY of Los Angeles, and are not applicable in the adjacent County regions.

Your blog makes for an interesting read, and we're pleased to have added it (and your RSS Feed) to our bookmarks.

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

Brian Humphrey
Public Service Officer
Los Angeles Fire Department

Glad to help! I have corrected the post above according to your comments.

I always look forward to your posts on the LAFD blog and other LA blogs.

Keep up the good work!
