The Village of Winthrop Harbor
provides a village-to-resident notification system through a
service called Blackboard Connect. With this service, village
leaders can send personalized voice messages to residents and
businesses within minutes with specific information about time-sensitive
or common-interest issues such as emergencies and local community
matters. The notification system is used to supplement existing
communication methods and augment public safety/first responder
All Winthrop Harbor residents
and businesses are encouraged to participate in this FREE service.
We know that your personal information is important, and rest
assured that we will not share it with anyone.

Each street address (residence
