What to do if there is a Volcanic Eruption

What can you do to protect yourself, your family and your property in the event of a volcanic eruption?

Build an Emergency Supply Kit, which includes items like non-perishable food, water, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra flashlights and batteries. You may want to prepare a portable kit and keep it in your car in case you are told to evacuate. This kit should also include a pair of goggles and disposable breathing masks for each member of the family.

Make a Family Emergency Plan.  Your family may not be together when disaster strikes so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.
