Some services have a fourth category, where they believe that no response is require after clinical questions are ask.
Jurisdictions that use EMD typically assign a code of “alpha” (low priority). Bravo” (medium priority), “charlie” (requiring advanced life support). Delta (high priority, requiring advance life support) or. Echo” (maximum possible priority, e.g., witnessed cardiac arrests) to each inbound request for service.
