For over 15 years, the Ascension Parish Industrial Group, Community Awareness Emergency Response (CAER), has participated in the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Christmas Crusade for Children. CAER’s membership consists of chemical and industrial companies with chemical plant facilities in Ascension Parish.

The CAER membership works closely with Ascension Parish Government and the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Department to define and prepare procedures that would be utilized in the event of a chemical or industrial emergency, according to CAER Chairman James E. LeBlanc.

“We’re just happy to be a part of this event and happy to help our community children have a nice Christmas,” LeBlanc said.
