Hazard Zone limits are based on data from historical eruptions of 1754, 1911, and 1965. Possible eruption from five (5) potential eruption vents, namely, Taal Volcano Island Main Crater, Binintiang Malaki, Pirapiraso, Off-Calauit and Binintiang Munti were generated.

As a general reminder, the Taal Volcano Island is designated as Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ).

Areas within and close to the Volcano Island may be affected by large volcanic fragments explosively thrown out (ballistic projectiles) from the vent.

Base Surge Hazard Zone limits are based on the reconstructed extents of the worst-case eruption of 1754 using energy-line modeling. This is replicated for five (5) potential eruption vents, namely, Taal Volcano Island Main Crater, Binintiang Malaki, Pirapiraso, Off-Calauit and Binintiang Munti. Buffer Zones are marked out at one (1) kilometer aerial distance from the hazard zone limits as additional precautionary zones, in case such are needed, for public safety guidance.
