If you’re an EMS professional you probably already have a scanner installed in your vehicle. The ability to monitor a wide variety of radio frequencies and NOAA weather channels cannot be forgotten as part of any emergency preparedness plan.
In today’s society more individuals are setting up their vehicles as part of an emergency evacuation plan. Installing a CB radio, GMRS radio, and scanner in your car, truck, van, or four-wheel drive is great insurance against the unknown. The ability to monitor two-way radio traffic whether it’s for inclement weather, natural disaster, or a human threat against life or property cannot be underestimated.
