BLACKBOARD CONNECT COMMUNITY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
What is Blackboard Connect?
Blackboard Connect is a mass notification system used by the Town of Highland Park to alert residents and business of emergency or urgent situations, to include:
- Emergency Situations Involving Public Safety
- Severe Weather
- Hazardous Materials Incidents
- Mosquito Spraying
Update Your Account
Every month Blackboard Connect automatically retrieves home and business telephone numbers that are available for public access. However, it’s important for you to sign-up to Blackboard Connect and add those avenues for communication where you are most likely to receive the message immediately. We suggest you add the following:
- Cell Phone numbers - You may receive both voice and text messages. We encourage both.
- Email Address - You may add multiple email addresses.
- Additional home or work telephone number
Do you need assistance with Blackboard Connect?
You are encouraged to contact Lt. Jessa Russell directly by email, or call 214-559-9487. Most often, Lt. Russell is able to update/add your contact information within a few short minutes.
