The 2019 campaign is enriched by a new risk, the volcanic risk. On October 19, during the national exercise Exe Campi Flegrei 2019, the “I don’t take risks volcano Phlegraean Fields” takes place.
For this first edition, there are eight squares in Campania hosting the gazebos dedicated to the volcanic risk of the Phlegraean Fields. The squares are located in the municipalities of Bacoli, Monte di Procida, Pozzuoli, Quarto, Naples, Marano and Giugliano di Napoli, considered as the Phlegraean red zone, where the only protective measure for the population is the removal before the beginning of an eruption.
In these places the citizens can learn more about the volcanic phenomenon and the national civil protection plan together with the volunteers and other representatives of the national service.
The gazebos are set up:
- in the municipal waiting areas, which in the local civil protection planning represent the places where citizens shall wait the assisted transport to leave the area at risk before a possible eruption, in case of alarm declaration
- in the meeting areas, which in the national civil protection planning are the areas from which citizens of the red zone, who choose to leave with assisted transport, will be transferred to the twinned autonomous regions or provinces
- in the municipal infopoints to support the municipal officers in the red zone, who will explain the municipal civil protection plans
- on some Trenitalia cars, in the central station of Naples, where specific exercise activities are carried out
