How does it work?
Sign up using the form below. In the box that reads WIVBCLOSINGS, search for your school, organization, workplace or business, and Update Alerts. Once the closing is triggered in our system, a text message will be automatically sent to your phone number.
What if I don’t see my organization?
The form to register for Closings 4 You, which includes on-air and on WIVB.com, is here. Note: the organization must be spelled exactly as written in our closings system for a text alert to be sent. If you are registered and the organization is not appearing in the search box, contact us here.
An up-to-the-minute list of closings is always here on our website and on the WIVB app.
What if I changed my phone number?
