    I didn't look at your list real close, but it looks like the one we used to use. However the new federal NIMS and ICS guidelines have said we should use "plain talk", so the agencies around where I work have gone away from the 10 codes.

    We've been told that we can continue using the 10 code internally however, if we have a multi agency situation, then the 10 code is not to be used.

    We used ten codes for first year of my employment, & currently going back and forth between plain language and ten codes.
    And it's confusing enough...Since I'm so used to on hearing ten codes, but instead you hear plain language.
