LAFD PARAMEDICS STRESS HOT WEATHER SAFETY — With record-breaking hot weather predicted, the Los Angeles Fire Department suggests you take action now to minimize the risks of sun and hot weather by preparing your household, pets and workplace.

Hot Weather Safety

Red Flag Parking

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 goal of this program is to educate the public on the potential hazards associated with a fast-moving brush fire, and the importance of keeping roadways clear.

Red Flag Parking

Brush

The canyons of Los Angeles are always a challenge in terms of fire safety. In addition to obvious brushy hillsides, there are multiple types of fire hazards that exist because of ornamental vegetation. The Los Angeles Fire Department works year-round to ensure those with this type of shrubbery obey the Fire Code relative to clearance and care.
