Early alert over fireworks
La Orotava is taking advance action to warn residents about new firework regulations which are coming into effect.
Deputy Mayor and councillor responsible for public safety, Narciso Pérez and fiestas councillor, Maeva García have been holding meetings with representatives of various residents’ groups. They feel it is opportune to do this as the new European pyrotechnic rules are very strict and the fiesta season is fast approaching.
In future, organisers will have to adhere to various limitations on the type of fireworks used, the distance from people and buildings, the permissions which will be needed in advance, security plan arrangements, training and so on.
The meetings explained all the steps which are needed and the paperwork involved.
