In the first 3.5 years of operations the Fermi LAT detected several sources with daily fluxes brighter than F(E>100MeV) > 10^{-6} ph/cm^2/s, the threshold set by the Fermi Collaboration for issuing an Astronomer Telegram. We focus the attention on these flaring sources, most of which are blazars, known to be extremely variable over the whole electromagnetic spectrum, from radio to gamma-ray energies and we investigate the properties of the selected sample comparing them to the general…
