Safety Initiative Now Open to Campuses Statewide


Champaign - A pilot program on the University of Illinois campus will help keep students safe and prepared when and if disaster strikes.


The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign became the first higher education institution in the state to receive the Ready to Respond Campus designation from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, today in Champaign.


"The Ready to Respond Campus designation represents the university's strong commitment to ensuring the safety of their students, staff and visitors to this campus," said IEMA Director Jonathon Monken.  "Attaining the designation isn't easy, but UIUC officials were diligent in their efforts to meet the program's rigorous standards.  The Ready to Respond Campus logo tells current and prospective students and their parents that safety is a top priority on this campus."


UIUC is one of nine campuses in Illinois that will be participating in the pilot of the Ready to Respond Campus program.
