Listening Notes
Welcome to our online live broadcast of emergency service operations through our online scanner. This feed is streamed from our fire station, located at 405 Cortez Road in Jefferson Township, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.

If this is your first time listening to a scanner, please use the following references to help educate yourself and become familiar on what is being said.

At times you may also notice long periods of silence. This is normal due to their being no current radio transmissions. Be patient, your bound to hear something sooner or later.

At times you may only hear one side of a radio transmission, this is also normal, due to the geographical layout of our area and due to the county using non-repeated frequencies.

This scanner feed is live, though it may be delayed at times several seconds.

Each geographical area is assigned a "venue number". Each town uses this venue number to identify their emergency vehicles. The following is a guideline on how the venue numbers are used:
          Fire units are prefixed with their unit type (Rescue, Engine, Tanker, Ladder, Brush) followed by their
             venue number.  i.e. Engine 29
          Municipal EMS unit pre-fixes range from 9 to 7 following their venue number.  i.e. 29-9
          County ALS units begin with an abbreviation of their service name (i.e. Lackawanna Ambulance = LA)
             followed by their unit number.  i.e. LA 10

Current frequencies programmed in the Scan List are:
          Lackawanna County Fire - Zone 3
Lackawanna County EMA
          Wayne County Fire Dispatch
Wayne County Fire Operations 2
Wayne County Fire Operations 3
Jefferson Township Fire Private
Abington Area Tac 2  
Lower Lackawanna Tac 2
Mid Valley Mutual Aid
          North Pocono Mutual Aid

At times you may hear frequencies being broadcast not listed above. This is due to the scan list being user programmable and may be changed periodically by personnel at the station.
