One of the most valuable things in an emergency is real-time information. You can plan and strategize all you want, but unless you have up to date information, it doesn't do you any good.
Scanner Radio can get you the real-time information you need. Get access to more than 4,400 live police, fire, weather and radio repeaters from around the world.
You can add local stations to a favorites list and see the Top 50 list of the most-listened stations, which is updated every five minutes. You can also get personalized alerts when lots of people are on a station at once, indicating there might be an emergency.
If you happen to hear of an emergency on the scanner, check out these five apps that can help you in an emergency.
