The Community Awareness and Emergency Response, CAER, organization deals with safety issues arising in Sarnia, Ontario. This thriving, modern community is located close to large chemical manufacturing, industrial, and oil refining industries, presenting a unique public safety challenge. The initials CAER represent the key components of the CAER initiative to meet this challenge:
Community Awareness - is the branch of CAER that keeps the community informed. Communication is provided around the nature of our local industry and what steps citizens should take in the event of a natural or industrial emergency. Activities are coordinated by the Community Awareness Committee, CAC.
Emergency Response - this function drove the formation of CAER, bringing municipal and industrial emergency responders together to identify potential risks associated with industrial operations and to develop emergency plans around them. The Chemical Valley Emergency Coordinating Organization, CVECO, oversees these activities.
