Volcano safety measures

Personal measures
  • In the event of an eruption, leave the area at risk using well-planned escape routes. 
  • Avoid areas that may be at risk from secondary effects of volcanic eruptions (e.g. landslides, earthquakes, tsunami etc.). 
  • Follow instructions issued by the authorities. 


Technical measures
  • Complicated and costly deviation of lava flows away from settlement areas


Organisational measures
  • The eruption of well studied and monitored volcanoes, for example Stromboli, can be forecast successfully. The timely evacuation of the population can be guaranteed as a result.
