Default Fire Dispatch Codes

I seem to remember a list on the site that showed the various fire dispatch codes. I cant seem to locate it and searching the forum returned no results. Does anybody still have this list?

I have a paper copy of the VECC Fire Dispatch codes but I was looking today for SLC Fire as the Gas leak showed as a 60B02O

Hey this is great it is just what I was looking for...

I found the list that I was talking about. It is actually on UtahRadio.org.

So slcsky, how do these codes differ from the VECC dispatch codes that are read on the air. "Dispatch code 8 Charlie, time out...." Or is it maybe the the continuation of the small VECC list that I have it just goes from 1 to 32

bneilson,
I think the ones you are talking about are pretty much medical codes and these look to be more fire/incident codes. Just a guess???

51-73 are the standard fire dispatch codes used by many agencies across the country (including VECC and SLC). Medical codes are 1-32. The Advanced Medical Priority Dispatch System (AMPDS) codes 1-32 actually originated in the United Kingdom and were adopted in the US many years ago.

Most of the time the dispatchers don't read the dispatch code for fire calls over the air. In fact, they hardly ever do.

Oh very good thanks for the info...

I hear the dispatch codes all the time on VECC Fire 1 (TG: 21216). I actually carry a list in my car (1-32). I saw the 60B02O code when looking at the SLC Fire CAD system.

Anyway thanks for the help!

No prob...

And just to clarify what I said earlier, the dispatchers will always read the dispatch code for medical calls (calls with the codes 1-32 assigned to them) on the air, but typically do not for fire calls (calls with codes 51-73 assigned to them).
