Welcome to Wakota CAER!

VISION

The vision of the Wakota Community Awareness and Emergency Response (CAER) Organization is to provide and support preparedness for public safety and environmental quality.

MISSION

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.

2014 General Membership Meeting Dates - Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 9:30AM, at the Wakota CAER Office at the Cottage grove Business Enterprise Center at 7516 80th Street South, Cottage Grove. 

Wakota CAER general meetings will not occur during June and July 2014. We will reconvene in August at the annual river cruise. However, the Board of Directors will meet in June and July at the regularly scheduled times.    

Annual River Cruise Enjoyed By All 

Attendees enjoyed an interesting presentation and closeup views of the new St. Croix River Crossing. A great lunch and near perfect weather made for a memorable cruise. If you were unable to make this year's cruise, be sure to make a plan for 2015!

Boom School Postponed!!  All the July dates for the Inland Waterways Oil Spill Responder Training (Boom School) have been postponed. This includes the July 15th 3-day class as well as the three single day refreshers on July 15, 29, and 30. High water levels and speeds have forced the decision. 

We hope to hold the classes in September or October. Please check back here for updates. Those who signed up for the July classes should receive updates in their email as well.
