Sign-up for Colrain Alert Notification System

Receive town-wide emergency and non-emergency notifications via telephone, email or text.

What is Colrain Alert?

The Town of Colrain has a contract with Finalsite (formerly Blackboard Connect) for an emergency and outreach (non-emergency) notification system, Colrain Alert. This system allows authorized town officials to create and rapidly disseminate time-sensitive messages to every telephone number and email address stored in the notification database. Per the Select Board, (see the Select Board Policies for more information) only authorized officials are allowed to access and send out emergency and occasional non-emergency notifications via telephone, email and text to residents.

How does the system work?

Authorized officials record a voice message that is then delivered quickly to individual phones and emails in the notification database.

How do I Sign up?

To sign up or confirm if your telephone number or email address is registered in the system, use the following steps:

  1. On the Town of Colrain homepage, select Colrain Alert
