Mentor Program

CAER has a trained group of volunteers from agencies and industries to provide on-site assistance for Shelter-in-Place planning. Mentor services include:

  • Onsite facility Shelter-in-Place assessment: CAER mentors will tour business offices, schools, nursing homes, child care centers, etc. to evaluate appropriate locations for Shelter-in-Place
  • Emergency Plan Review: Mentors will review site emergency and provide input on addressing
  • Drill Planning Assistance: When it is time to practice the steps in an emergency plan, mentors will review drill plans, and assist in evaluating drill performance
