Volcano Eruption Safety Tips

  • Make evacuation plans. If you live in a known volcanic hazard area, plan a route out and have a backup route in mind.
  • Prepare an emergency kit for your home with flares, booster cables, maps, tools, a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher, sleeping bags, a flashlight, batteries, etc.
  • It is ideal to have emergency food in case the volcano does explode and you won't be able to go outside. Be sure to have enough food for your family for at least 3 days.
