East Harris County Manufacturers Association (EHCMA)
Houston Operations has been a member of the East Harris County Manufacturers Association for many years.
“To promote the health, safety, environmental, and economic well-being of our industry and of the communities around our plants.”
The East Harris County Manufacturers Association (EHCMA) is a voluntary alliance of approximately 125 chemical manufacturers, refiners and supporting distribution/terminal facility managers in the Bay Area, Baytown, Deer Park, Houston, La Porte, North Channel and Pasadena. Founded in 1987, EHCMA is the largest network of its type in the world.
EHCMA members work together for the safety, environmental and economic well being of plants and communities. EHCMA sponsors the CAER Line (Community Awareness and Emergency Response) as a primary information source for the community about industrial incidents. The CAER Line also provides citizens with an opportunity to report concerns about air quality through its Odor Network. CAER Line callers can report nuisance odors in their neighborhoods. Member facilities then work together to identify and eliminate industrial odor sources.
CAER Line: (281) 476-2237
