Archive for the tag “Emergency”


Here at DFW ALERTS, we try to get you important information in a timely manner.

Our services are free to everyone. That includes our Twitter feeds, Facebook and radio talk show.  As well as our live streams of Traffic, Weather, Accidents and News Events.

What many of you may not know is that we also (funds permitting) go out on the scenes of accidents, fires and where news is happening around DFW. In those cases, we provide you with exclusive photographs, videos and, in some cases, live streaming raw video.

When we are on a scene, we try to have water for law enforcement and emergency workers on the scene. Though, I have not heard of a case where we have refused a bottle of water to anyone who has requested one.

All of these things cost money. Here at DFW ALERTS, we rely on YOU, our followers and friends, to provide the funds and support we need to continue.


Q: How can I send funds to DFW ALERTS?
A: You can make a payment via PayPal to: dfwalertsjs@live.com

Q: I only have $5.00 that I can send, is that enough?
A: Absolutely, ANY amount that you can afford to send is very helpful.

Q: I am not sure about sending money, is there another way I can help?
A: There sure is, we can always use bottled water and small bottles of fruit juices. Also, if your company offers product(s) and/or service(s) you think might be useful to us, contact: dfwalertsjs@live.com and let us know what product(s) and/or services your company can offer. This could lead to your company being listed as a sponsor of DFW ALERTS.

Q: How can my company become a sponsor of DFW ALERTS?
A: Contact: dfwalertsjs@live.com and let us know how much (per month) your company is willing to provide for sponsorship. You can also let us know of products and/or services that your company would be willing to provide.

As you can see, there are a few ways that you can help. Please feel free to contact us anytime at dfwalertsjs@live.com

FW OEM message regarding Outdoor Warning Systems

This message is copied from an eMail alert I got throught the FW Office of Emergency Management    (@FWOEM):


** The City of Fort Worth sirens may be activated for any kind of emergency – not just severe weather. Though some residents still think of them as tornado sirens, that’s not the case. While they are used during severe weather, they may be used for other emergencies such as: hazardous materials, terrorism, or national emergencies. The sirens are an OUTDOOR warning system and may not be heard indoors or in a noisy area.

The system is tested every Wednesday of each month at 1:00 pm, weather permitting. The system is tested for 90 seconds on the first Wednesday and for 15 second for the remaining Wednesday’s in the month. If you hear the sirens at any other time you should go inside, tune into your local radio or television station for additional information and instructions. **

To report a siren malfunction please call 817-392-6170 or after business hours at 817-392-8866.
