“No person shall be upon public streets, avenues, boulevards, places, walkways, alleys, parks or any public areas or unimproved private realty within the City of Burbank during the hours of the curfew” except “peace officers, fire fighters, first responders and National Guard or other military personnel deployed to the area, credentialed media, individuals traveling to and from work, people experiencing homelessness and without access to a viable shelter, and individuals seeking medical treatment.”

The City of Burbank Police and Fire Departments will be prepared for any emergencies or vandalism that will possibly occur. Should you experience an emergency, please dial 911.
