- Educate our residents about the risks associated with natural and man-made disasters, and how to be prepared.
- Provide residents with the knowledge and skills to keep themselves and their families safe, just in case.
- Should a major disaster occur, ensure there are CERT-trained residents who can help their neighbors until emergency personnel can respond.
There are currently over 220 active and reserve CERT volunteers, organized into 27 neighborhood teams within the Lakewood Ranch community.
Lakewood Ranch CERT, established in 2006 under a special Department of Homeland Security and FEMA program, is a volunteer organization of residents who receive special training to provide search and rescue, first aid and radio communications support in response to disasters and emergencies when professional responders may not be able to reach everyone as soon as help is needed. We are part of the Manatee County, Florida disaster response system and are located in and serve the residents of Lakewood Ranch, Florida, midway between Bradenton and Sarasota on Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast.
