signal 17 - 911 call thru PSAP
signal 18 - private emergency taken thru AMR call center.

[mind you that was 10 years ago - I can't imagine it's changed much, I'm sure someone who hears them more regularly can correct/chime in]

The most common New Haven Area Fire / EMS signals / codes that AMR uses on Med 10 are

"Signals"
4 - Assistance needed
12 - DOA
16 - Intoxicated
17 - Psychiatric patient
26 - Ambulance
29 - Police
99 - Message Received

Code 100 - Cardiac Arrest
Code 200 - Traumatic Arrest

When there is a fire in the area you may hear they use the following (New Haven FD signals) but usually now in plain English if used at all.
21 - Box / First alarm assignment
22 - Second Alarm
23 - Third Alarm
24 - Fourth Alarm
25 - Fifth Alarm

I do not know what AMR utilizes on their own frequencies in the New Haven area besides these I listed above. Granted I'm 10+ years out of dispatching in the area.

Ahh
I stand corrected.
Signal 16 is ETOH.
Been a while since I have used them.

Which AMR? the codes mean different things in different areas
I apologize I was talking about the Hartford AMR area
I believe AMR pretty much uses plain English now on their frequencies and on other systems. However like many a "old timer" like me will still uses some of the old signals / codes from a specific area / region when communicating with that specific agency on their frequencies. It's just an old habit that is hard to break. Especially around the cities like New Haven, B-Port, Hartford, etc.
