MonroeTalks. Now your personal police scanner.

Now if you excuse me, I have a fire to go watch.

This is real unfortunate.  This is my favorite don't do it yourself carwash in Monroe.

I don't worry about listening to police.  I keep the Monroe County Fire on in case I might have to go running into Petersburg, Dundee, Whiteford, etc. on a mutual aid call.  I like knowing if my pager is going to go off, I hate surprises.

Update:

It may not be too bad, Frenchtown has not requested additional help from the City up to this point!

Cannot hear Frenchtown talking anymore though since they moved to Emergency Channel.

7 minutes between tone time and on scene.  Its about a 4 mile drive thats a nice response time!

The fire looks like it was very well contained. 

Happy to see that when I went by this afternoon, the Car Wash is up and runnung, some plywood is visible along the roof line, but all in all it would appear that the Frenchtown F.D. did a tremendous job containing this fire.

Great work guys.

I used to love my scanner, but yeah, same thing.. when they switched to digital a few years back, they were so pricey I couldn't afford one.   They are great entertainment!

You can hear Monroe County Central Dispatch for fire on 159.0900 on your old scanner.  I believe but cannot not confirm that once a department goes to an "emergency channel" they cannot be heard on my scanner.  As far as I know all the emergency channels are on the 800mhz system along with the Police.
