Toledo News Now is changing the way we send texts – to make it easier for you.

Here's how it works. If you want to sign up for a certain kind of text alert, like breaking news, you text the word "BREAKING" to the number 41911.

That signs you up to receive breaking news texts from Toledo News Now.

Here's a few of the codes you can send – and what they'll sign you up for:

# # #

BREAKING – Breaking news alerts from Toledo News Now

FORECAST – Daily forecast texts from your Certified Most Accurate weather team 

TRAFFIC – Traffic updates to optimize commute time

# # #

It's just as easy as typing the word – and sending it the the number– 41911.

A reminder - there are a few things you still have to visit the website for. If you want to sign up for school closings, you have to visit www.toledonewsnow.com/41911 and manage your account.  That's where you can *customize* exactly what kinds of alerts you're receiving. For school closings, type in your preferences for "School & Organization Closings," wait for your preference to appear, and click to select the one you want. Same with severe weather alerts and sports. Sign up for those alerts at toledonewsnow.com/41911.

Bonus: You can sign up for texts and emails at the same time.
