Action Scanner - Police, Fire, EMS and Amateur Radio

By Geoffrey Rainville

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Keep up to date on all of the action with Police, Fire, Rescue, Ambulance, Amateur Radio, News and more all in the palm of your hand! Now you can hear it all right as it happens around you or from around the globe.

Why spend hundreds of dollars on an old-fashoned police scanner that will only receive local frequencies, when Action Scanner can tune you in to over 3,600 feeds in 19 countries worldwide?

With so many feeds to choose from, it would be crazy to expect you to pick just one. That's why we've designed Action Scanner to automatically scan up to 4 feeds simultaneously and seek out the action in real time. No other IOS scanner application can offer that!

* Scan up to FOUR stations at once - An Action Scanner Exclusive!
* Scan in the background - Action Scanner continues to run while you use other apps or turn your screen off to conserve your battery
* Find the most popular scanner feeds by state, county or world-wide
* Organize your favorite feeds into banks and switch between them instantly
* Find the active feed at a glance on the integrated map
* Beautiful user interface optimized for the Retina display
* Extensive coverage of Police, Fire, Emergency Services, Aircraft, Railroad, Amateur Radio Repeaters and more!

Please note that like all of the scanner apps in the App Store our feeds are provided over the Internet by individual volunteers, and we can't add or guarantee the availability of feeds for any particular area. We are confident that you will find plenty of information and entertainment regardless. If your locality isn't listed, consider becoming a feed provider - information is available at This application and those like it in the App Store do not allow you to receive police radio frequencies directly on your device.

Action Scanner is the official iPhone app of Edmonton Fire Radio.

Customer Reviews

Not the same, but still good.

It used to run non stop without interruption. Now, it runs fine in the background, but when I GO BACK to the App, it shuts down. I have to check to make sure it's up and running a lot more than before. Aside from that, this is a great App and I will continue to use it.

Great scanner app...when it works

Love this app, especially being able to monitor multiple channels at once. But... Now with iphone6 and iOS 8 app stops working in background sometimes, crashes iOS once in a while, and freezes. Please update the app, it's the best in class when and will be again when made more reliable.

Almost Perfect

The only improvement I wish could be made is being able to single out a frequency and hear it.
When I try this now there is no audio. Thanks
