Police Scanners & Preparedness


Introduction 

For many scanner enthusiasts like myself, a police scanner is one of the most valuable tools we can have nearby when disaster strikes! Why? Because critical and timely information is key in the aftermath of any major emergency, disaster, or other "large-scale" event. 

From personal experience, the only sure way to get timely up-to-date and critical information after a disaster is by monitoring a police scanner. Television and radio broadcast information is not a viable option as information via those sources is often delayed, sketchy, or unconfirmed at best. 

This section will help you prepare for major emergencies by providing information on what you need to know including how to get your police scanner ready for disaster!

Beyond Emergency Disasters 

Besides emergency disasters, a police scanner can be a valuable source of information during other life-threatening situations. How? Well, everyday in neighborhoods across America, police and fire personnel respond to tens- of-thousands of calls for assistance. The majority of those calls for service are minor in nature, meaning there is no immediate danger to the public at large. 

On the flip side, there are those calls that do pose a serious threat to life and/or property. These "small-scale events" range anywhere from power outages to dangerous police situations including high-speed pursuits, suspect foot chases, neighborhood lock-downs for an outstanding suspect search ("suspect containments"), barricaded suspects, hostage situations, or even worse, an armed suspect on a deadly rampage.  

The Bottom Line: Information is key! 

By monitoring emergency radio communications in your local area, you will get important information in "real-time" as events unfold around you. Armed with this information, you can take any necessary action to protect you and your family and even avoid unseen dangers before itís too late! Over the years, there have been many situations where my police scanner has been without a doubt, my most valuable possession - even saving a life or two along the way.
