Definition Of Mitigation: The action to reduce the severity, seriousness, painfulness of the event

How do you think people PREPARE, RESPOND to and MANAGE a volcanic eruption?

-    Run away (Evacuation)
-    Set up blockades
-    Monitor the volcanic activity
-    Use remote sensing (satellites)
-    Frequent news reports on volcano status
-    Give medical attention to casualties
