The second is for the public and emergency managers on guidelines for preparedness before, during and after an ashfall. The third is information for the public on how to protect yourself from breathing ash. The fourth is on the health hazards of volcanic and geothermal gases.
The pamphlets are available for mass distribution at the onset of new eruptions. The pamphlets are available in a range of languages. If you would like to have the pamphlets in your language, please Contact Us.
