How to avoid a firestorm from your local fireworks show
A wildfire in Florida’s Everglades, and the death of a tourist in New York City, are just the latest reminders of the dangers of fireworks in the wild.
And with the number of fires expected in 2017 already well above 100, it’s becoming clear that fireworks are just one of the many hazards that the weather will present.
“The last few years have really been a fire season that we’ve never seen before,” says David Hirsch, a meteorologist at the University of Maryland.
“There’s a lot of activity that is going on that has not been seen before.”
Fireworks are just another way that fireworks will become more common As it has in previous decades, fireworks will be a part of the 2017 fireworks season.
They’re just a different way to get fireworks into the air than they have in the past.
“Fireworks have been used in many different ways in the American history,” says Hirsch.
“It was used as a way to mark the end of the Civil War.
It was used to mark a victory in World War I.”
It’s also used in a variety of ways now.
According to a 2016 study, about one in 10 Americans have seen fireworks since the turn of the century.
And some studies have found that even people who have never seen fireworks in their lives have seen them.
So when fireworks are on display, it can be hard to stay focused on the fireworks.
And for many people, the fireworks can be distracting.
A new study conducted by researchers at Harvard University, however, found that when people see fireworks on display and want to keep their eyes focused on them, fireworks can actually distract people.
“We wanted to know if fireworks could actually have a positive effect on attention and focus,” says co-author Eric Erikson, a psychologist at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Engineering.
“If you’re trying to keep your eye on the firework, you may think, Oh, I have to focus on it.”
To test this hypothesis, Eriksion and his team put participants in a virtual reality simulation of a fireworks show.
The participants were then asked to watch a virtual version of a firework display that had fireworks flying around them.
The virtual fireworks were displayed at a distance of 10 feet.
Participants were then presented with a choice: choose between seeing a virtual fireworks display or a real fireworks display.
Participants who chose the fireworks display were asked to estimate how many people would be in the room.
Those who thought fireworks would make the audience more focused on fireworks were also given the choice of a virtual firework.
“One of the most interesting things we found was that when participants were shown a virtual display of fireworks, they were much more likely to choose the fireworks,” Eriksson says.
The researchers say that this could be due to the fact that people are more likely than ever to see fireworks when they’re on the move.
“Our data suggests that people really like fireworks and would want to stay close to them,” Ersons says.
“They don’t want to see them falling off the stage.”
That said, it seems that fireworks aren’t the only way that people want to get distracted during the fireworks season—people can also choose to look for a fire, too.
When people are distracted, they are more inclined to get involved with a fire.
“When people are in a situation where they want to look out for a burning object, it may be that they may choose to take an interest in a fire,” says Eriksons.
“In this situation, they may want to use their imagination to try and see if they can get into a fire.”
So what can you do if you’re on fire?
It’s easy to get yourself into a blaze.
As the weather gets warmer, people are less likely to be able to see the flames, which can create an even bigger problem for you.
“People may see the fire as a hazard, so they might be more inclined than ever, because it’s cooler and there are less people around, to take a shot at it,” Elesons says
