There is an evacuation plan for the worst-case scenario, the eruption of Vesuvius. An exodus plan could soon arrive in the event of an event of serious bradyseism in the Campi Flegrei area for which Minister Musumeci will bring an ad hoc decree in Cdm. The measure is being studied by the government and provides for a plan in case of serious bradyseism, with assistance to the population and possible forms of temporary removal for the territories particularly affected by the phenomenon.

Today, meanwhile, the Major Risks Committee met. "We asked the commission of the National Civil Protection System to let us know the analysis of the scientific community on the updated situation of the area from the seismic and bradyseismic point of view", explained Musumeci. For the eruption of Vesuvius, there is already a national plan that involves a total of one million three hundred thousand inhabitants and includes a twinning scheme for the transfer of the population of the municipalities in the red zone to various regions. There will be a red zone, with the preventive evacuation of the population in case of 'alarm', and a yellow zone for temporary removals, as well as four different alert levels. The map of the document in case of eruption includes an area that goes from Naples and the Neapolitan coast (from Pozzuoli to San Giovanni a Teduccio) up to extend gradually along the hinterland hinterland to the territories of Villaricca, Melito or Casavatore.

In the red zone, the one most exposed to the danger of invasion of pyroclastic flows (ie avalanches of gas, ash and volcanic fragments) are included the Municipalities of Naples and some of its municipalities, Pozzuoli, Bacoli and others, for an area that in total includes five hundred thousand inhabitants. The removal of the population from the red zone begins with the declaration of the 'alarm' phase. The yellow zone - where 24 districts of Naples fall, the municipalities of Villaricca, Calvizzano, Marano, Mugnano and others and where a total of eight hundred thousand inhabitants live - is the area, outside the red zone, which in the event of an eruption would be exposed to the fallout of volcanic ash. Temporary removals may be required for this area.
The four alert levels - green, rooster, orange and red - describe the state of activity of the volcano for the Phlegraean Fields and mark the time preceding a possible resumption of eruptive activity. There is an 'early warning' phase, in which people who want to leave can do so but only independently. At the declaration of 'alarm' instead the whole population must leave the red zone and can choose to do so independently or assisted. The total estimated time for this operation is three days: in the first 12 hours they will be useful to allow people to prepare, the next 48 hours concern the departure of the population from all the municipalities of the red zone. Finally, the last 12 hours represent a margin of safety for the management of any critical issues.
