Brush areas surrounding the Rose Bowl Stadium will be treated with the wildland fire retardant Phos-Chek on Wednesday, June 30, from 9 a.m. to early afternoon.
The Pasadena Fire Department will take this proactive approach to diminish potential hazards during the Fourth of July holiday and into the summer season.
Fire retardant is one of the primary tools firefighters use as a preventive measure and to contain fires in untreated areas.
Phos-Chek helps keep trees and grassland from burning. Its main ingredients are phosphates and fertilizers that prevent the ignition of fire and assist in regrowth of areas after a fire has been extinguished.
