timing belt question?

i have a 1995 2.3l 4banger and it has about 180,000 on it now. the timing belt was replace at 110,000 the first time (and the only time that i know of being that i bought the truck with 54,000 on it in 2002).

now my question is... are the 2.3 lima motors a zero interference motor? meaning if the timing belt snaps going down the road will it totally ruin my motor, or can i just realign the timing and put a new belt on it and keep going (like a 1.6l civic motor)?

thanks RF in advance for the help!!!
