Alerts & News for DFW (& surrounding areas). Comments not necessarily opinion of DFW Alerts

Just a Thought….

If you like what we blog on here….  How about a like and/or a follow.  Let us know how we’re doing.    Some of the blogs that we put on here are time consuming and difficult  to do (not meaning to complain here)  and doing it for our own eyes is not what we’re after…  We want to share the information to get it “out there”.  We do this for you – The Community, but it’s hard when we don’t know if our community is even following along.

Got a compliment?  A suggestion?  A complaint?  A critique?  – just ask that you be respectful and keep comments clean

The DFW Alerts Network blog received 841 views this past week. We sincerely hope that some of those people clicked on your links and visited your sites as well.

We thank you for your sponsorship and what you have done to help us continue to serve the community. Whether your company/organization provides DFW Alerts with Funds, products or services, it all makes a difference.

Are we worth $5 a month?

There have been a  few people out there who have  stepped up and done what they could to help DAN out and to those we say  – Thank you.

We Still need more help though.

If every follower could donate $5 there we would be enough to correct this equipment failure issue we’ve been having and have some left over for the next issue.  We realize of course that not everyone can give $5 every month, but even $1 a month can make a huge difference in our ability to continue to provide you with the information we do!!

The DFW Alerts Network is not a large company with money at our disposal.  Nor do we have major sponsors or backers providing us with the funds necessary to keep this going.  It is made up of only a few of us doing what we can out of our own (dwindling) back pockets.  You may think that there is no cost in doing what we do (after all aren’t we just tweeting and ReTweeting??) But even just “tweeting  requires having “equipment” to be able to tweet from (phone, laptop, something).  But it’s not just about tweeting, it’s also about getting out there and actually reporting on what’s going on (not just ReTweeting the news from other people).  In order to do that we need working vehicles and the gas to get to where the news is.  We also need the ability to take pictures & videos of these events.

We do this for you, our followers….  Don’t you think we’re worth a $5 a month or even just a couple $$???



For those who have not been with us over the years, I wanted to share some photos from one of our very first, on scene, reports.

Not only were we on scene, we were on scene before the police arrived, secured photos of the scene moments after it happened and even did our best to keep anyone from touching evidence.

This was a shots fired call in S.E. Fort Worth. Here is what we saw:

DFW ALERTS NETWORK (DAN) will be having a meeting to discuss the future of DAN. The direction that DAN goes after this meeting will largely depend on comments and feedback we get from the community (you). It will also depend on the support we feel we can expect from the community. 

What we do is not free. We have bills and expenses that have to be taken care of. We need to know our community is behind us.

If you do not provide input and/or support and you don’t like the direction we take DAN, please don’t fill our E-mail with complaints.  If you had nothing to say when it made a difference,  you should have nothing to say after the fact.
