This form is for use only by businesses and schools to participate in the RIBA closings and delays notification system.
If you are looking to sign up for text alerts relating to school closings/delays or for parking bans, please visit the websites of our member TV or Radio stations. Registration for the RIBA closings/delays system is on the station home page or under the weather tab. Click Here for a list of stations and websites addresses.
Due to the increasing cost of hosting and maintenance fees of the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association Cancellation system, we have had to increase the registration fee of this service.
Registration fee is $100.00 per year. This fee includes use of this system 365 days a year. We accept emergency activation messaging throughout the year. All messages activated are delivered to newsrooms of our Television and Radio station members, along with going up on each member station website.
If you are a non-profit business, contact LNeedham@ribroadcasters.com with your business name, address, contact information and Tax Identification number to have the fee waived within the system to allow you access to the closing page.
All registered users will now have opportunity to promote the use of text alerts to be sent to (pre-registered users) as soon as your company/business activates a message within the system. Any employee, client or other persons can register on-line at any radio or television station website to receive text alerts for your individual message.
We thank you for your understanding that this service is vital to the safety of Rhode Island but faces the uprising costs of technology advances.
