The Cabildo de Tenerife has presented it’s action plan against volcanic risk, as part of it’s ongoing public protection plans.
In a presentation last week, president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Pedro Martín outlined the actions that local authorities would take should a volcanic event occur on the island.
Plans include mass evacuations, shelter provision and educational programmes to help prepare should any eruption occur.
However authorities are keen to stress there is no risk at present from Mount Teide, which last erupted 112 years ago in November 1909.
