Meets monthly on the 3rd Wednesday at 9 a.m.

The Community Outreach Team promotes Shelter-in-Place education in the community and publicizes the many resources provided by CAER. The team:

Organizes the Countywide Shelter in Place Drill on the first Wednesday of November.

  • Plans CAER's participation in many community events to promote emergency preparedness and Shelter-in-Place education. CAER mascot Wally Wise Guy frequently makes appearances at these events.
  • Produces educational materials about Shelter-In-Place and other emergency preparedness topics. These include magnets, brochures, newsletters, videos and materials designed for children. CAER's Business Shelter-in-Place Guidelines assist businesses in training employees in Shelter-in-Place procedures, and guide the development of a preparedness plan. These kits include thermostat labels, window decals, and training materials. All of CAER's materials are free and can be ordered online by clicking here.
