The study addresses preparations for an eruption and restrictions on the use of land in the vicinity of the mountain, said the Comisión Nacional de Prevención de Riesgos y Atención de Emergencias. The volcano is surrounded by a national park, and access there has been restricted due to activities in the mountain.

The agricultural activities on the skirts of the mountain have suffered from the acidic vapors emitted by the mountain. The area is one of dairy farms.

The commission said that those who attend the 10 a.m. session will get an assessment of the dangers and ideas to help them prepare for an eruption.
