City Attorneys Responding in an Emergency

Mission
The City Attorneys Responding in an Emergency (CARE) Unit helps local city attorneys respond to a catastrophic event by providing critical legal assistance to facilitate recovery.

Purpose

The CARE Unit is a resource with multi-disciplined, multi-talented, and highly-qualified volunteer attorneys who assist local counsel in properly advising city officials regarding local recovery efforts. The CARE unit is composed of members who are highly knowledgeable in municipal law and disaster issues.
