Welcome to WBIR's new and expanded system for listing closings and delays. We're glad to help you get the word out when emergencies force you to change your schedule.

We are now accepting closing and delay notifications for schools, businesses, churches, and one-time events - all in a single online system. However, we do give highest priority to those changes that affect the most people. The list below shows what kinds of notifications we offer for each type of organization.

 

Schools - any institution, public or private, that offers regularly scheduled instruction for credit in any grade 1-12. Closings or delays in this category appear in our televised list and on WBIR.com. Users can also register to receive this information via text alert.

Colleges - any institution, public or private, that offers regularly scheduled instruction for credit toward an associate, bachelor, or graduate degree. Closings or delays in this category appear in our televised list and on WBIR.com. Users can also register to receive this information via text alert.

Major Business - any business that employs more than 500 people, operates more than 10 locations, or whose schedule changes impact large numbers of other people or businesses (a shopping mall, for example). Closings or delays in this category appear in our televised list and on WBIR.com.

Other Businesses - any business not in the category above. Closings or delays in this category appear on WBIR.com.

Government - any government entity. Closings or delays in this category appear on WBIR.com. Some may also appear on television. Users can also register to receive this information on some government agencies via text alert.

Churches - any place of worship. Closings or delays in this category appear on WBIR.com.

Daycares, Preschools and After-School Programs - any institution that offers regularly scheduled childcare, children's activities, or instruction before first grade. Closings or delays in this category appear on WBIR.com.

One-time events - Closings or delays in this category appear in a separate listing in a story on WBIR.com.
