In an effort to provide reliable and effective communication to residences, the Town of Mashpee has implemented the Blackboard Connect Notification System as our emergency provider.
Blackboard Connect is a high speed notification system designed to make calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency or for sharing important information. The Mashpee Emergency Management Team and other town departments use this system to notify residences by telephone of important information regarding you and your property. The system can make thousands of calls in a minute to convey vital information. These messages may include information on floods, fires, water emergencies, road closures, missing persons, evacuation orders, weather and other emergencies.
It is important that residents and business owners verify their contact information in the database. Accurate telephone numbers in the database help to ensure, but cannot guarantee, that emergency information will be passed on to everyone in a timely manner.
Residents can add additional telephone numbers including a cell phone, and can also receive notification by email, text, or pager. The address documented must be in Mashpee, but the telephone number can be from anywhere. Emergency messages can reach TTY (teletypewriter) phones used by the hearing impaired.
All the calls you receive will have a Caller ID indicating the Town of Mashpee. Please Click the Blackboard Connect Icon above to access the Town of Mashpee MyConnect Portal to add or update your contact information. You may also remove yourself from the list.
