Emergency Steps to Follow During Volcanic Eruptions



September 30,2021

RECOMMENDATIONS

IF YOU ARE UNDER A VOLCANO WARNING:

  • Listen for emergency information and alerts.
  • Follow evacuation or shelter orders. If advised to evacuate, then do so early.
  • Avoid areas downstream of the eruption.
  • Protect yourself from falling ash.
  • Do not drive in heavy ashfall.
  • Cloth masks help prevent the spread of COVID-19, but they will not adequately protect you from inhaling ash for long periods of time like a respirator will. Respirators, like an N-95, are not meant to fit children. Due to COVID-19, it may be difficult to find respirators, such as N-95s.
