⚠️ Feel free to listen in, but please only use this audio feed in ways that are respectful to our local first responders and the people they're responding to.

Misuse of this feed to invade people's privacy (such as posting about people's medical issues on social media), harass anyone, or interfere with first responders could lead toward this feed shutting down and/or local agencies switching to encrypted radio communications, so let's please all do our part to keep it available.

This online feed is provided for informational and entertainment purposes but it should never be relied on for actual emergency alerting or response. It is run as a hobby project, not a 100%-reliable emergency service.

Agencies in other nearby counties are generally not included; if you're interested in listening to other counties you can check out that county's page on or on your favorite scanner app to see what's available.
