Weather Alerts

Communicating effectively during unexpected weather events is critical to emergency management personnel and the communities they serve. That’s why Blackboard Connect™ developed automated Weather Alerts to help emergency management directors take the time and guesswork out of keeping communities informed about severe weather.

How does it work?

Blackboard Connect receives data feeds of four types of warnings from National Weather Service/NOAA:

  • Severe Thunderstorm
  • Tornado
  • Flash Flood
  • Special Marine
  • Blizzard Warning
  • Coastal Flood Warning
  • Fire Warning
  • High Wind Warning
  • Hurricane Warning
  • Tropical Storm Warning
  • Winter Storm Warning

And automatically sends to either all constituents, or predefined groups via phone, email, or SMS providing you with:

  • Quicker message delivery
  • Increased safety
  • Targeted communications
