RE: SC EMS Signals

Don't know if they're up to date but in my 2005 edition of the Police Call Frequency Guide the SC EMS signals are on page 529.

I did not check to verify that this is the same information linked to by Caesar, but we have a list of SC DHEC signals in the radioreference database for SC.

It's tricky to find - go the the main SC database page, click on "Other SC Government Agencies", and then click the "Codes and Maps" tab. It's there because so many agencies use them.

The direct link: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?action=codes&code_id=1137

I also like Ceasar's link to Briaan, there is some signals on Ceasar's link that are not on the data base file , such as signal 050 which is missing on the date base file and some others .Both are good links though .

Just thought I would point out that when using the DEHC codes that some counties say "EMS code 74" while a diffrent county might say "Signal 74" they are the same. Some counties use plain language. Occasionally a dispatcher may use a law enforcement code when they should use a DHEC code, drives inexperiences EMTS crazy.

Also, some counties use both codes and signals at the same time. A signal # is used when referencing a specific medical condition of a patient and a 10 code is used to refer to the type of call or incident.

Neither here nor there
As a Paramedic I can confirm that those codes are correct and current.

Alex, whats the time table for EMS to go to 800. Also when your at work tell Capt. "L" down there in the basement that I need my keyloader cable back....

Up in Pickens County, EMS and Rescue were supposed to go to plain language, but the dispatchers still use EMS signals and 10 codes. We are now enroute and on scene instead of 10-17 and 10-23. I guess we just dropped the 10 codes.
