Regarding the weather information that goes forth during severe announcements: I think that FOX6 does an awesome job in getting the word out. You know true enough, some of our schedules are inconvenienced but what is the inconvenience when someone's life could be saved just by the information that is going forth.

Gary from Empire
I am so thankful for J-P and that crew over there, that weather crew. They give us plenty of time to prepare. And they did a wonderful job all day long. I salute these men, thank y'all very much and please keep doing it.

Amy from Odenville
I have two small boys. I'm deathly afraid of the weather. I just wanted to let you guys know what a good job you're doing in letting us know ahead of time about the weather. That way we can get to some place safer.

What J-P and his weather team did with the severe weather coverage  on April 24 was the right thing to do. Glad to see someone cares about the wellbeing of those in the FOX6 viewing area...KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

Chris from Alabaster
I'm a Firefighter EMT, so listening to J-P Dice and giving fair warning not only helps in public safety but definitely tries to save lives and that makes our job a little easier too. But, when we are called we want to do our job and they got a job to do with the weather team as well. That's to put it out and make the public safe.
