Vic SJA pager questions

Post by Joshek »

Just a few questions for how SJA crews are paged.
1. What do E, REQ and DSP stand for in the page? Like E19121xxxxxx SIG1 REQ0xxx DSP0xxx
2. How do the capcodes work on the Vodafone network? I've only seen these ones get paged: 0399638, 0572129, 0710357, 0710361

At a guess;

E = Event
REQ = Request
DSP = Dispatch

Numeric following will be a unique job ID.

That is a very good guess Pumper50. There are also J and N event types which are; triaged by referral and patient transport events respectively.

E191213765 = Standard event

J191201158 = Case triaged by referral

N191202436 = Patient Transport event
