Okay, How Do I Really Protect Myself? Alright, let’s get to the nitty-gritty on surviving a volcano. Before an Eruption Occurs: Discover whether there are volcanic hazards in the area likely to affect you. If you live in an active volcanic zone, always assume that you may have to deal with the effects of an eruption. If you live in an area that could experience a lava flow during a volcanic eruption, know a quick route to safe ground. Listen to authorities regarding volcanic activity. If vulcanologists agree that a life-threatening eruption is likely to take place, a Civil Defense Emergency will be declared and the danger area evacuated. Listen to your radio or TV for information and follow civil defense advice. During an Eruption: Save water in your bath, basin, containers or cylinders at an early stage - supplies may become polluted. Stay indoors with your pets as much as possible. Wear mask and goggles if you go outside, to keep volcanic ash out of your eyes and lungs. Keep gutters and roof clear of heavy deposits of ash, which can collapse the roof. Take your outdoor clothing off before entering a building - volcanic ash is difficult to get rid of. Take your Getaway Kit with you if you have to leave. Turn electricity and gas off at the mains. If you turn gas off, have a professional check for leaks in case of damage before turning gas on again. Keep below ridge lines in hilly terrain - the hills will offer some protection from flying volcanic debris. DON’T Go sightseeing! DON’T Leave home unless advised to by the Civil Defense.Text

Hello this thread is to discuss possible safe havens should there be an evacuation of any kind in light of the recent earthquake activity in Yellowstone.
Also keep in mind that this may vary depending on what area you are posting from but the purpose of this thread is to find areas that may be suitable should such an event occur.
