Since the GunCrisis Reporting Project started offering a free breaking news text alert service several months ago, we have sent less than one alert every three days, on average. Please let us know if you would like more information via alerts or fewer interruptions.
We have included alerts for only a small number of national events, such as the Empire State Building shootings and the Wisconsin Sikh temple incident. Should we include more or less national news, or should we have separate services for local and national incidents?
You can sign up for our free text alert service by texting ‘guncrisis‘ to (215) 987-5555. You can unsubscribe at any time by texting STOP — or you can just reach us through the contact info at this site if you prefer to have us remove your number.
We want to thank to textblast.org for providing this valuable free delivery service.
