How to request an ID and password for WAFF's closings & cancellations database

If you do not have a user ID or password, and you wish to report a delay or closing, please call our switchboard at 256-533-4848.

To Apply for a Username and Password:

We will need the following information to get a new organization added to our closing online database:

Name of Organization: 
Type of Organization:
Mailing Address:
Zip Code:  
Contact Person Name:  
Business Phone #:
Contact Email Address:
Organization Website:

Please email this information to with the subject "School Closings Setup."

Please email information to set up new accounts only.

We will not close your business on your initial email to us. You will not receive a username and password upon your first email. We will confirm your information and assign you a user ID and password for future use. You should then be able to initiate the closing through our website.

If you experience difficulty, you may contact our newsroom at 256-533-4848.

Please note: schools, colleges and large businesses will appear both online and on TV. Smaller businesses, daycares and other organizations will appear online only so we can cut down on the amount of time it takes the closing list to scroll across the TV screen.

Once we receive the above information, a letter and/or email will be sent to the contact person with the ID code and password assigned to your organization and the procedure needed to report a closing to WAFF.
