SMS Text Updates & Alerts
NOTICE: SMS ALERTS TO END APRIL 20, 2020. As our audience preferences evolve, we seen diminished enrollment in our SMS alert subscriptions, therefore we are phasing out of SMS alerting. For the most complete and reliable local news updates and alerts delivered straight to you, we encourage users to download and use our free mobile apps and keep notifications turned on. You can also custom tailor your alert types and topics so you only get the types of alerts that you want.
Soon to be released also are opt-in notifications offered to users who use WPRI.com. This offering’s expected release is during the Fall of 2020.
Closings & Delays
Select any or all of the schools, daycare, businesses, health services, and municipal parking bans that you’d like to receive email or SMS text alerts on.
