All is Well in Neighborhood

Things are pretty quiet right now. I have been listening for a bit and nothing has come across. So I am going to turn in for the night. Good night everyone. If you would like to contribute to the blog please email me

It is not hard to do, in fact I had no idea what I was doing when I started a few days ago. Even if you just think you might want to do it, contact me. You do not have to listen to the scanner there are plenty of other avenues to help.

I am Back and Listening

Looks like we have another contributor for the blog, I am excited and enthused. He has experience blogging and truly cares about the area.

Time Out

There will be a 2-3 hour blackout on posts starting from now, as I meet with another neighbor about helping contribute to this blog. There is still plenty of room for others to assist, Wouldn't it be great to have 24/7 coverage for our neighborhood?

Major accident with very serious injuries, they need extra cars to assist with traffic and they need to tape off the scene. Victims are being transported to Masonic Hospital with very serious injuries. The Major Accident squad is on the way to investigate and beat cars were told to hold their position and secure the scene until they arrive.

I posted the last one even though it is outside of Uptown because it might impact some readers trips home from work this evening. Also all non-emergency radio traffic was put on hold until they could get all their ducks in a row responding to this incident.
