Police Scanners are Local Fire Lead Generation
Over the years scanners have been a source of entertainment for millions of people worldwide. When a police car or fire truck races by one’s house, curiosity peaks and one naturally wonders what is happening. Is it someone I know? Can I help? These are some of the first thoughts, and such questions can be answered by listening to a police/fire scanner.
Over time though, many innovative thinkers made the connection between such events and a chance to help their neighbor as well as earn new business. People whose lives have been interrupted by a fire in their home want their life back in order as soon as possible. The combining of a police scanner with fire only frequencies programmed into it and an ear to listen equals real time information and leads throughout your service territory.
