It also can set the response level. For example, where I work, paramedics only respond on Charlie, delta and echo calls. If we are dispatched on an alpha or bravo, we respond cold, that is, with no lights or siren.
And omega calls are the lowest priority with no life threat. For example, a home to doctors office transport would be coded as an Omega. The highest priority is an Echo, such as a cardiac arrest, 9 echo 1.
