The Manhattan Fire Department is touring campus buildings through April 24, according to K-State Today.

The goal is for firefighters to become familiar with campus life-safety equipment and building layouts.

The crews will look for fire alarm control panels, sprinkler controls, fire department connections, main electrical rooms, elevators, areas of rescue assistance and more.

Hi, I'm Kaitlyn Alanis, former news editor for the Collegian and a May 2017 graduate in agricultural communications and journalism. I have never tried a hamburger and I hate the taste of coffee, but I love writing stories and sharing what I learn with our readers. By writing for the Collegian, I can now not only sing along when the K-State Band plays "The Band is Hot," but I also know that most agriculture students did not grow up on a farm, how to use an AED to save someone's life and why there is a bust of MLK Jr. outside of Ahearn Field House. Thanks for reading!
