These codes are used by the dispatcher on the EMS Radio in order to classify calls and dispatch to the field units. When you are listening to your scanner, you will hear the dispatcher give the code first, followed by the location of the call, and finally, the station that is assigned to respond.

When dispatching FIRE calls, the dispatcher uses Plain English to describe the type of fire, therefore, Fire Codes are not used and are not listed here.
When dispatching POLICE calls, our dispatchers are mostly using Plain English, transitioning away from the use of Police Codes.
The Monroe County Control Center policy prohibits the dissemination of Police Codes via the Internet.
The Monroe County Control Center is not responsible for any rebroadcasts of our radio communications on scanner apps.
