Emergency Notifications

Blackboard Connect

Blackboard Connect is a system used by the Town to send instant information via email, phone calls, and text messages. Used for emergencies and service notifications, it's important to keep your information up-to-date.


Blackboard Connect requires no additional hardware and can be accessed through an iPhone application, any computer with Internet access or a telephone, allowing officials to send vital messages from wherever they are located. We can also target specific neighborhoods so you'll only receive those messages that are relevant to you.
