Unit Status Legend
Color-coded unit identifiers appear on incident displays within the PulsePoint Respond app (e.g., ?E118 ^BC9 PM39). These are the Radio IDs of agency units, such as engines, chief officers and ambulances assigned to the incident. Colors and symbols are used to indicate their current dispatch status as shown below.
On iOS devices individuals with impaired color perception can enable the Apple Accessibility setting Differentiate Without Color to convey unit status information using monochrome text labels.
Note: There is no standard for the identifier abbreviations (E, T, S, BC, RA, PM, etc.) and they can vary greatly from agency to agency.
