  • The CHS scanner page is provided as a public service.
  • It features dispatch broadcasts from the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct and Seattle Fire medic and ground activity from across the city.
  • Please use caution when discussing live scanner information — especially via social media. Broadcasts can be confusing and multiple events and multiple locations sometimes overlap.
  • It is also recommended that you do not publicly discuss information that could put first responders at risk during emergency situations.
  • Use common sense and put the resource to its best use — helping people understand what is happening on the blocks around their neighborhood.
