Where NOT to let of fireworks this New Year’s Eve

The town of Oberursel would like to remind residents that fireworks may not be let of in the town in the following areas:

– near timber-framed houses, or close enough that the firework could land on one

– near houses with thatched-roofs, or close enough that the firework could land on such a roof

– near churches, hospitals, childrens’ homes and homes for the elderly

This is not just a request but governed by laws on the use of explosives and environmental noise control.  Anyone setting of a firework that causes a timber-framed house to catch fire faces not only a fine and claims for damages, but also the possibility of a prison sentence.
