Mt Rainier is an active volcano and can be a hazard to your home. That’s why it’s important to remember and practice volcano safety. Here’s some tips that will help you with that.
Listen to some station on a portable, battery operated radio or TV for updated emergency info and instructions. It’s important to always be in the know when and where danger is happening. Having a way to connect with meteorologists will always be useful.
Officials will give the most suitable advice for your specific situation. Follow all evacuation orders issued by police, and place your emergency plan in action. Practice makes perfect.
Even though it might seem safe to stay at home and wait out an eruption, staying in a risk zone. When indoors, close all windows, doors, and dampers to stay volcanic ash from entering.
Put all machinery inside a barn or garage to safeguard it from volcanic ash. If buildings aren’t available, cover machinery with big tarps. Bring animals and livestock into closed shelters to defend them from breathing ash.
Be sure to be on the look out for fallout ash. These are flakes that can be hazardous to breathe in. They can also stick to outside objects causing them to erode quicker. So keep anything valuable inside.
