City Red Flag Parking Issued for Friday thru Saturday
Following the National Weather Service declared Red Flag for Friday morning through early Saturday, the Los Angeles Fire Department is taking extra precautions and calling for red flag parking restrictions to go in affect for at least 24 hours beginning on Friday at 8:00 a.m. The restrictions affect hillside neighborhoods where narrow streets make it hard for fire trucks to get through. Red Flags are called when low humidity, high winds and temperature are a perfect mix for fire ignite and to sustain itself.
