Stay up to date in the event of an emergency, road closure, or community event and more by signing up for Blackboard Connect.

Mundelein implemented Blackboard Connect so Mundelein officials can stay connected to residents and efficiently provide them with direction in the event of emergency, road closure, or community event. Using Blackboard Connect, officials can record and send an unlimited number of personalized voice messages to home phones, businesses, local agencies and mobile phones in just minutes. The service also sends email, text messages (SMS) to mobile phones and posts on Facebook, RSS feeds and Twitter channels. Messages can also be sent to TTY/TDD devices for people who are hearing impaired.

“Keeping our community safe and informed is our top priority, which is why we need to be able to communicate with residents quickly in an urgent situation,” said John Lobaito, Village Administrator. “Blackboard Connect enables us to communicate efficiently with residents in just a matter of minutes, helping save valuable time, use resources efficiently and protect our community.”

Mundelein officials can target each message to an unlimited number of groups. Authorized users can also use the system’s geo-mapping and group subscription features to contact residents based on specific geographical locations and interests, helping ensure recipients receive relevant, targeted information.

“With Blackboard Connect, we know our residents are receiving the information that matters most to them, whether it’s an urgent situation or routine community update,” said John Lobaito, Village Administrator. “I strongly encourage residents to register their contact information and update their message preferences into the system’s secure database so they are prepared to receive important notifications.”

Publicly available primary residential and business phones in Mundelein will automatically be included in the system. However, to ensure the Village of Mundelein has the most up-to-date contact information, including cell phone numbers and email addresses, residents should visit the Mundelein website and provide their complete contact information. Users should also manage their message preferences by indicating their preferred mode of contact, language and message topics. Those without Internet access are encouraged to call Jennifer Marshall at (847) 968-3775 to provide their current information.
