Ascension Parish Chemical Industry
Community Awareness Emergency Response
 

Who is CAER?
In 1985, several Ascension Parish Chemical Companies joined forces, brought together by their desire to educate area residents about the industry’s function in the community. The result is the 16-member Ascension Parish Chemical Industry’s Community Awareness Emergency Response, or CAER, Committee. The 15 chemical company representatives, and the Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness that make up CAER, comprised a program designed to inform the community about the chemical industry, what it manufactures, and what chemicals are used in the plants. Since its beginning, the CAER Committee has been actively involved in providing the Ascension Parish community with new and up-to-date information about chemical emission, inventories and emergency procedures.

 

FOR YOUR PROTECTION

Because we CAER.
The Ascension Parish Chemical Industry’s CAER Committee has installed a 26-siren community alerting system, designed to be heard within an approximate radius of 2.5 miles of each plant, in the area in which the plants are located. The system will provide effective early warning for the community.

IF THERE IS A CHEMICAL EMERGENCY that could pose a threat to people who are near the chemical plants, the sirens will be activated, emitting a loud pulsing signal only in areas where immediate action is necessary.
