MEDFORD, Mass. — If it's going out on a police or fire radio scanner, Michael Moura hears it — even when he's sleeping. The 27-year-old has four scanners turned on at nearly all times in his car, work truck or bedroom, in the basement of his parents' Medford home.
Moura is a 'sparkie' — someone whose hobby is listening to scanners, then driving to scenes of major incidents in hopes of catching a glimpse of what cops and firefighters endure every day.
