Memorandum #70 - Changes to callsign system

Dear Staff,

Following recent conversations held by members of the factions and a significant amount of discussion taking place over this subject twice within the past few months, the Chief Officers have decided to sit down and discuss the topic of call-sign changes in order to better reflect the factions direction of a closer portrayal to our IRL counterpart. As we are now several months past the previous vote the decision has been made to now introduce the changes to callsigns and introduce the 800 callsign, therefor moving us away from the RB/RA system we currently have.

The primary change to the callsign system is regarding Rescue Ambulances, our current system adopts the use of RB or RA to define BLS or ALS units. We will now step away from this method and refer to all ambulance as RA's (Rescue Ambulances) and BLS/ALS units will now be differentiated by an 800 call-sign or a standard two digit one. Please see below with the finer details.

Any unit that is on duty as a BLS (EMT) resource will now utilise the callsign "Rescue 8XX", for example if you're utilising Rescue 71 as BLS, you will be known as "Rescue 871".

Any unit that is on duty as a ALS (Paramedic) resource will now utilise the callsign "Rescue XX", for example if you're utilising Rescue 71 as ALS, you will be known as "Rescue 71".

Radio communications will move away from the use of letter based call-signs and utilise the name of the resource such as "Rescue XXX" and not "RA-XXX". The purpose of this is to give us more structure, on /callsign you can still utilise "RA-XXX" for the ease of dispatchers ability to oversee units. Below will show a current breakdown of all stations and the units within said stations, the first part comprises of the verbal radio comms use of the callsign and the section in brackets is how you should display your unit on /mcallsign.

With this change it's important to note that all Rescue Ambulances will be fully equipped with BLS and ALS equipment as they are now, it still stands that you may not utilise any ALS equipment unless you are certified to do so, doing so can lead to suspension, termination and license revocation.
