Reference booklet and app for EMS event types

AHS EMS Dispatch is upgrading the Medical Priority Dispatch System (MPDS) event codes to Version 13 on March 3, 2016.  Did you know there are almost 1,700 different EMS event types?  If you are interested in more details about MPDS codes there are several resources available.  A hard-copy of the MPDS Version 13 reference booklet is available, with a limit of one per MFR agency (pictured below).  An app is also available for download, with a licence number required to activate the content.  The licence passcode is available for free from the MFR Program.  Contact us at if you are interested in these reference materials.
