Reservations for the first ever Lakewood Ranch CERT public Hurricane Preparedness session, scheduled for March 7, were closed almost a month before it was scheduled, due to high demand.

To accommodate more LWR residents, we've scheduled an additional public Hurricane Preparedness session for Saturday, May 18 from 9-10:30 AM. Reservations for the May 18 session are now open. This session is also expected to fill quickly.

Lakewood Ranch community leaders and residents are invited to attend the May 18th event which will cover hurricane preparation basics including tried and true preparation tips, disaster supplies to have on hand, and how to decide whether to stay or evacuate. We will also be sharing information on the role of CERT and how attendees can join our organization.

Registration is required and seating is limited.
