The City has subscribed to the Blackboard Connect Emergency Notification System.

About Blackboard Connect

This system allows authorized City leaders, Police Department and Emergency personnel to rapidly alert citizens and subscribers to any situation affecting the safety and welfare of the City.

Situations may include:
  • Any Matters Affecting the Safety, Property or Welfare of Our City or Our Citizens
  • Crime Alerts
  • Emergency Alerts
  • Hazardous Traffic Conditions
  • Other Matters of Community Interest
  • Severe Weather Warnings
Subscribers may be notified by messages distributed by telephone voice, text message, and/or email message.


Subscription to the Blackboard Connect system is not automatic. Although many names and numbers have been imported from our prior emergency notification system (Code Red), we have found much of that contact information to be outdated. It is our desire that every residence and business in our community be included in the notification database.

You should register online for the Blackboard Connect system by going to the City of Livingston Blackboard Connect portal. You should have available your name, street address, telephone numbers and email address and be prepared to create a password. If you reside within the Livingston City limits, you should indicate your physical location on the mapping option, as some notification alerts may only affect a portion of the City.

You may change your notification information anytime by signing in to your account with Blackboard Connect at the City's Blackboard Connect portal and changing your notification information. You may also visit Livingston City Hall during regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, or the Livingston Police Department at any time to pick up or complete a registration form (PDF).
