What is the CAER line?
The CAER Line is a hotline for community members to hear recorded – or posted internet – messages from EHCMA member facilities regarding operational updates.
The CAER Line was created as a way for our members to give back to the communities where they live and work.
What to expect from the CAER Line
The CAER Line is a community resource that alerts the community to emergency and non-emergency events. Emergency events are those which require community safety procedures. Non-emergency events, such as flaring or fire drills, require no community action. Messages offer basic information such as what the event is, where it happened and whether any action is required by community members.
Messages could include information about events involving & general information about:
- EMERGENCY RESPONSE
- RAIL CARS
- TANKER TRUCKS
Plant operators try to post urgent messages within 15 minutes of an event, however at times it may take longer. While the CAER Line is a valuable resource, community members should contact and follow instructions provided by local emergency managers during emergency situations.
