Question of the Month: How do I sign up for Code Red?

  • What is Code Red? It is a communication system used by the City Of Deer Park to communicate critical and timely information on weather, evacuation, shelter in place, missing children, and other community announcements. It provides a variety of information from one source. It is used with, but does not replace the City of Deer Park warning alarm system.

How We Select Meeting Topics

Every year or so, DPCAC develops a Program Plan to assure it is addressing issues of greatest interest to community members.  Community members, plant members, and guests brainstorm topics they believe DPCAC should address.  Using sticky dots, they choose those they most want to cover in the coming year.  By using different colors for community and plant members, the CAC can schedule the topics of most community interest. The Program Plan is flexible and may be changed by group agreement.

Contact Us if there are issues you would like DPCAC to address or if you would like details and an invitation to a DPCAC meeting.
