ABSTRACT
Volcanism has both positive and negative effects. The limitation of the latter ones is admittedly difficult, however, depending on the strength and frequency of events and opportunities for the communities living in these areas is real, and the steps undertaken by them are varied. Despite the risks of inhabiting the regions of active volcanism these areas are densely populated. In the endangered areas the authorities, supported by scientists, are responsible for the effective management of risk and preparation of evacuation plans, which reduces material losses, and saves the life of the inhabitants. Thus, the question is whether and how the island society living in areas directly threatened by volcanic activity can counteract its negative effects? The article makes reference to the eruptions of located on the islands volcanoes Mont Pelée (Martinique), Soufrière Hills (Montserrat), Pinatubo (Luzon) and Helgafell (Heimaey), Ruapehu (New Zealand) and Santa Barbara (Terceira).
