More Than a Half-Million Texas Households Now Receive Urgent Alerts From Blackboard Connect

150 Municipalities Rely on Industry Leader to Keep Residents Safe and Informed

WASHINGTON, April 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Blackboard Inc. (Nasdaq:BBBB) today announced that 150 municipalities within the State of Texas utilize the Blackboard Connectâ„¢ mass notification platform to help keep residents safe, informed and connected.

Representing more than 600,000 households across the state of Texas, local government leaders have taken the lead in enhancing communication and preparedness by adopting the Blackboard Connect service to communicate quickly, accurately and consistently with their communities.

Statewide, Blackboard Connect has been leveraged by local officials to quickly notify residents and provide critical direction in a number of urgent situations. Last December, for example, an explosion at a chemical plant near the city of Seabrook saw nearby communities Galveston County, Kemah, LaPorte and League City send more than 30,000 voice, email and text messages to residents and businesses, guiding them to shelter in place immediately following the explosion.
