In collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA), Manhatan Good Neighbors will be having its third biannual Ready Campus event to promote safety and disaster preparedness. This semester, we are focusing on pet safety - how to best prepare to protect your pet in an emergency, or at the time of a disaster.  Organizations such as K-State Veterinary Medical Center, Riley County Humane Society, and the Riley County Police Department’s K9 Unit will present on topics about pet safety throughout the day.  Join us for food, fun, and meeting some furry friends!
