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

A firework rocket - © 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.
