If you want to help the Manhattan community be prepared for a potential disaster, check out the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross offers advice on how to individually be prepared for a disaster, as well as assistance to people affected by disasters. You are able to be a Disaster Volunteer and choose from several different roles in order to help those in need. You can also be a part of the Basic Aid Team and help teach basic First Aid to children so that they can be prepared as well. Don’t forget that you can also ask for help if a disaster occurs in your area.
Steps to Be Prepared:
K-State Alerts is Kansas State University's emergency notification system that gives campus authorities the ability to communicate emergency information quickly to the university community. K-State Alerts will be used when a dangerous condition exists on campus (e.g. active shooter, storm in process, dangerous debris from storm), when a decision to close the campus has been made or when a decision to reopen the campus following a forced closure has been made. To receive emergency notifications by text or phone, you must enroll in K-State Alerts through the eProfile system. Only current faculty, staff, and students with an active eID are eligible to sign up for text messages and phone alerts. This includes K-Staters at the Manhattan and Salina campuses, distance students and those at research and extension offices. Eligible K-Staters can add contact information of parents, children and spouses when they sign up.Hide Description
