Sirens to be tested on Saturday morning

Although the members of the fire brigade in Oberursel are usually equipped with pagers, the town also operates a system of sirens to alert them should a major catastrophe take place and the local infrastructure be affected.

These sirens were once part of a national network, but when the network was decommissioned in the 1990s the town decided to keep them and operate them locally.

The system is due to be tested on Saturday, 28th October, 2017 between 12 noon and 12.30pm.  The test signal lasts for one minute and is made up of three 12-second signals with pauses between them.

There is no cause for alarm if you hear that signal between those times!

The sirens are located at the fire stations, or in Oberstedten’s case where the fire station used to be:

  • Marxstraße 34
  • Kalbacher Straße 10 (Bommersheim)
  • Kirchstraße 34 (Oberstedten)
  • Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Straße 2 (Weißkirchen)
  • Gartenstraße 5 (Stierstadt)
