Hey guys, I'm new to the Scanner Hobby. I was was wondering if Ipick up Niagara Falls Fire with this I bought it off Amazon Uniden Handheld Scanner, Black (BC75XLT). I know I can get Volunteer,,but I like to listen to the career FD, a lot more action. I'm a training firefighter and would like to be a part of the NFFD some day. I enjoy learning about their Dispatch and what not. :)

Providing that scanner can do p25 you should have no problem...but rumor has it they are moving too the Niagara Regional Police system (encrypted) in the near future

I believe there on a digital system. Unfortunately your scanner is an analog only.

All the frequencies are on RadioReference for the fire departments.

I guess you missed the previous answers that said an analog scanner wouldn't suit your needs...

You'll be able to get some of the county stuff around you that's analog but city FD is digital.
