NEWTON COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
Blackboard Connect

 

Newton County is pleased to announce the launch of the Blackboard Connect service, our new county/town-to-resident notification system. With this service, county and city leaders can send personalized voice messages to residents and businesses within minutes with specific information about time-sensitive or common-interest issues such as emergencies and local community matters. The Connect service will be used to supplement our current communication plans and augment public safety/first responder services.

Please accept our invitation to participate in this great service. We know that your personal information is important, and rest assured that we will not share it with anyone. If you have NOT already received a test phone call from us, or you would like to provide additional contact information, click the link below to sign up.

Sign up now to get Newton County's Blackboard Connect System.
