Systems


CAER uses the CodeRED System.

If an event occurs that may impact your area at one of the surrounding chemical plants you will be notified by the Emergency Communications Network's (ECN) CodeRED service.  Please take a moment to visit the link provided below. Fill in the appropriate information to be notified by your local emergency response team in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts.

If you have an unlisted number and you have not registered with CAER in the past, please follow the link below to sign up for CodeRED.

CAER Siren


There are 15 strategically-placed CAER Sirens surrounding the chemical complexes. They can be heard within an approximate 1 mile radius of their location. They stand 50 feet high and are radio controlled. These sirens are tested every Monday beginning at 12:10 p.m., and will sound for 45 seconds. 

The CAER siren alert is only sounded in the community it affects. The all clear is the same siren. (This is different than the plant sirens which have specific patterned signals.)
