What are they saying when they dispatch for EMS on say like 155.925 here in the capitol region. I understand everything about they location and and description but they say some other things like "bravo" and other codes they saw, what do they mean? maybe someone that knows EMS dispatch can enlighten me

Yeah, it's a response level. Saratoga County dispatches calls like 1-Delta or 2-Bravo. The number indicates the response level, like use of lights and sirens, and the letter is the level or severity of the emergency, with Alpha being a low severity and Echo being an extreme emergency (like a cardiac arrest).
