Hazards in monogenetic volcanic fields include processes and events occurring prior to, during, and after an eruption. This contribution identifies hazards resulting from processes occurring prior to and after a volcanic eruption. From recent experiences in the Chichinautzin volcanic field, hazardous events associated with reports of potential impending eruptions have turned out to be three types of false alarms: fires or gas explosions in sanitary landfills, underground fires, and anthropogenic lava flows. Typically, people who live at monogenetic volcanic fields know that an eruption is a likely event, so when they observe deformation of the ground, heat flow, and explosions,...
