Can I e-mail or fax you a closing?
To prevent unauthorized people from closing a school or business we only accept closings through the phone system.
Can I get a code?
Fill out the form here at abc11.com. Some one will contact you with your closing code and the procedure to follow in the event of severe weather.
I can't find my code, or I left my code at work, can you give it to me?
To maintain the security of our closing system we require the authorized person to have the closing code. Please keep a copy of your code and instructions at home.
Do I need a password?
The closing code is your password. Many times people will call in and say their password is "snowball", "snowflake" or "blizzard." These are old passwords from an old system and we no longer use those passwords.
