To assist you in preparing for wildfire, the Los Angeles Fire Department is pleased to share regional Fire Weather reports issued twice daily by the National Weather Service.

While terrain is studied and many hazards held in check by our annual Brush Clearance Program, the LAFD asks you to stay aware of local fire weather and Red Flag Alert Parking Restrictions.

Personal awareness of wildfire danger, combined with your readiness to take quick action in the event of a brush fire remain our collective key to survival.
