On Saturday, September 25, the new fire station will be dedicated. Come on out for this community celebration at 1:30 pm. The neon-lighted artwork will provide a recognizable night-time landmark for Crown Hill. [UPDATE: Mayor McGinn will be there for the dedication ceremony, and there will be a mini-town hall meeting at the fire station beginning at 2 PM. This is your chance to meet the Mayor and let him know your concerns].
One of the most popular pages on this site is “What’s that Siren?” The page lists a number of resources for finding out about police and fire department activity in the neighborhood.
The SPD is now making a broader range of police reports available to the public (but, the reports are “redacted”, and registration / sign-in are required).
Additionally over the last month, a couple of you (Steve and Alysse) have written to indicate the KOMO Scanner web site was no longer working for Mac computers. I updated that to a different link, which unfortunately still does not work for Mac’s. I have also added a couple more web sites which offer live feeds of the police and fire radio transmissions. One of the new sites claims to be Mac usable.
If you’re interested, you can check out and bookmark the newly revised “What’s that Siren?” page.
