To increase public safety, the Fire Department and Department of Transportation have created a program to remove illegally parked vehicles in posted locations within the Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones.

The Los Angeles Fire Department is Dedicated to Saving Lives, Fighting Fires, Safety and Prevention, and Building Communities.
