Volcano Disaster Preparedness

Before an Eruption

  • Prepare an emergency kit and make a family communications plan
  • Follow evacuation orders issued by authorities
  • Danger from mudflow increases near waterways and with heavy rain. Mudflows can move very fast, so do not cross any bridge if a mudflow is approaching
  • Avoid low-lying areas, such as valleys and rivers
