The Sarnia-Lambton Community Awareness Emergency Response (CAER) organization addresses the unique safety challenges arising in the Sarnia area given the proximity to industry. CAER is a valued community partner providing essential information that can be used to help prepare local residents in the event of an emergency, including relevant instructions to help keep residents and their loved ones safe.  

One of the tools used to strengthen connections between municipalities, industry, and the community is My Community Notification Network (MyCNN). Powered by CAER, and partnered with the City of Sarnia, MyCNN is an advanced regional emergency notification tool that allows the timely communication of information including warnings for extreme weather, unexpected road closures, missing persons, and evacuations. MyCNN also includes emergency and non-emergency updates from local industrial sites. MyCNN is offered free of charge and allows subscribers to customize which types of notifications they would like to receive and indicate how they would like to receive them based on the type of alert. 

Non-emergency notifications can be received through the Everbridge mobile app on any smartphone or mobile device, as well as through email notifications.

  • Extreme temperatures
  • Flooding
  • Municipal safety instructions
  • Municipal service disruptions
