List of Scanner Feeds pertinent to SCC:
https://www.broadcastify.com/listen/ctid/225
Of these the most useful are the CalFire and San Jose Fire. Agencies will often create separate scanner feeds during complex events to keep communications from interfering. Such was the case during the CZU/SCU/LNU fires.
