It has long been said that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That axiom is at the core of what Wakota CAER is about. Effective prevention and preparedness can only be accomplished through collaborative efforts. Contrary to the perception, competing companies and industries can come together to share information and resources when lives are at stake.


The vision of the Wakota (CAER) is to provide and support preparedness for public safety and environmental protection.


The mission of Wakota CAER is to foster a collaborative culture through networking, communication, and education that results in a higher level of public safety and environmental quality.
