|Who is CAER?
In 1985, several Ascension Parish Chemical Companies joined forces, brought together by
their desire to educate area residents about the industrys function in the
community. The result is the 16-member Ascension Parish Chemical Industrys Community
Awareness Emergency Response, or CAER, Committee. The 15 chemical company representatives,
and the Parish Office of 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 Industrys 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.
