Pamphlets for the public and emergency managers

Two sets of pamphlets have been published by IVHHN in association with USGS, IAVCEI's Cities and Volcanoes Commission and GNS, New Zealand.
  1. Volcanic health hazards of ash explained – A guide for the public on the health hazards of volcanic ash.
  2. How to prepare and cope with ashfall – Preparedness guidelines for the public and emergency managers before, during and after an ashfall.

The pamphlets are available for mass distribution at the onset of new eruptions. English versions have been distributed to all volcano observatories and are being translated into several languages. The pamphlets are currently available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Swahili, Icelandic and Bahasa Indonesia. An Italian version will be available here shortly. If you would like to have the pamphlets in your language, please Contact IVHHN.

There is also a poster which combines both pamphlets which has been specifically written for children and young people.
