How prepared are you should there be an eruption? It's a concern being put to homeowners in the Central North Island following recent activity from White Island and now Mt Ruapehu.Civil Defense says specific products will save your life during an eruption.

Researchers have conducted aerial surveys due to current vigorous seismic activity at Ruapehu.The last indications of seismic activity on the mountain were tape-recorded in 2007.Now the Civil Defense’s message is to be prepared.
Pryor says, The most important thing that you can do to be gotten ready for a catastrophe is to have a household plan because that's the way you are going to understand where to go, exactly what to do, who you are going to ring throughout a disaster this is the important things that many people don't have and exactly what they require many of all.
Civil Defense’s advice is to find out about disasters, produce and practice a home emergency plan, assemble and preserve emergency survival products and have a vacation kit in case you need to leave in a hurry.
A grab and go kit is something you leave near the door or in the car that you can grab when you leave your home in a big hurry and this is a little kit which contains things like your essential medicines some water, some food an emergency treatment set and things like a battery powered radio that you can maintain to this day with everything.Researchers call this location the 'Ring of Fire' where there is high volcanic activity.This afternoon, the Volcanic Alert level for White Island dropped from level 2 to level one.However, it's unclear when an eruption will happen, which is why you should be prepared.
