DECATUR -- In case of emergency, a local community college is ready to respond. Richland Community College completed the Illinois Management Agency's Safety Program. The school was the first community college to receive the designation from the state.

In doing so, the entire campus is better prepared to react to an emergency. The University of Illinois is the only other school in the state to receive the same certification.
