    I agree with trelovell. Our facility uses a different set of 10 codes..... and the code meaning is different. For example 10-22 , is come to this location.... so some are the same but definately not all of them.

    These codes are not universal. The state of Florida's 10-codes are similar but different than some of these

    Part of the IAP, (Incident Action Plan), clearly states to use palin language, no codes. Sometimes I catch myself using plain language, guess we've had too much training in IAP's.

    Some agencies are using plain speech. It seems so much easier in stressfull situations
    I understand the brevity of ten codes, but Sometimes all 100 are hard to recall when you are struggling for your life.

    As long as I know my own agency codes I'm good ...oh ya bfriskey...if that was my dispatcher, I would be back at the hq having a heart to heart out by the dumpster...as a dispatcher I can say there was NO legitimate reason to endanger you in that way.

    Gotta standardize 10 codes and alphabet..I was in a high speed chase and the ahole dispatcher started a discussion about using the proper alpha character during radio comm.. idiot.. you really can't figure out an 'e' from 'echo' instead of 'Edward' ?? then quit .. really an inappropriate time to be a jerk 100 mph 1 hand on the radio and a jerk on the other end who is supposed to get me back up, switched to LERN and got a STATIE, he understood 'echo' !!!

    Ten codes should be kept and used, words like sold or stolded sound alike on radio. If the code 10-85 was used the night a traffic stopped was made on a 90 year old couple, a lot of things that took place that night would never have happen. I feel codes are a great thing, only they should be the same thoughtout the U.S.

    We use plain speech, We have a few codes for when como comes back with wants, or associated parties. It is nice because it requires less memorization and easier to process during high stress situations

    Only about half are the same for my agency but we've gone to plain text, so it really doesnt matter.
