Normal Parking DayNormal parking conditions are in effect.
In 1998 the Beverly Hills City Council unanimously accepted the recommendation of the Public Safety Committee to implement the proposed restrictions on parking within the wildland urban interface (WUI) on days of extreme fire hazard, also known as Red Flag days.
Assembly Bill 337 (1992) required the identification of Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zones (VHFHSZ) within the City of Beverly Hills. See map for “Fire Danger Area Sign Locations” (PDF). This designation permits the adoption of additional restrictive standards to reduce the fire hazard and protect live safety in the area. The Fire Department surveyed the streets in the VHFHSZ and determined that certain parking restrictions were necessary to maintain adequate evacuation routes for the public and access routes for fire emergency vehicles.
Streets where parking is restricted on Red Flag days are posted with appropriate “No Parking” Signs. If signs are not posted on the street, that street is not affected with those restrictions. As an alternative solution to conventional parking restrictions, the Fire Department in cooperation with the City’s Department of Transportation, Public Works, and Police Department determined that enforcing parking restrictions only on days designated as “Red Flag” days. See map for designated “Red Flag Impacted Streets” (PDF)
In light of the outcomes of recent large fires in the State, the Fire Department has found it necessary to revisit this issue. We have determined that expanding the Red Flag no parking restrictions is necessary in order to protect life safety and improve our ability to evacuate residents while simultaneously deploying fire apparatus in to the VHFHSZ during a wildfire. The Fire Department recommendations were evaluated by the City’s Department of Transportation and the Police Department prior to submission to the Traffic and Parking Commission.
