Until I get the hang of this, I will probably be bothering everyone........ so here we go again....

What I want to know is the different code levels: Code 1, Code 2, Code 3.... to me it would seem that 1 increases to 3, am I correct to assume this? As apposed to 3 increasing to 1.

The other day there was a medical call where they used Code Blue, this I have never before. If anyone can direct me to a list, made by one who figured it out, as I again assume that it differs from dept. to dept..

Code blue usually means cardiac arrest, whether that means the same thing in the radio world I am not sure. Kearney huh, glad to have someone else on here that isn't from the eastern part of the state.

I have also heard code blue to refer to a person that has no signs of life. Different areas use different terms.
