An important note on NEMSIS 3 Response Modes needs to be mentioned here:
Historically, ER has used the NEMSIS 2 response modes on Basic Info 4 (Apparatus). With NEMSIS 3 now in the mix, you'll notice a change in the names of these response modes.
Fortunately, in our system, these response modes are equivalent to the "old" NFIRS response modes:
|NEMSIS 3||NEMSIS 2
|Emergent Downgraded to Non-Emergent||=||Initial Lights and Sirens, Downgraded to No Lights or Sirens|
|Non-Emergent Upgraded to Emergent||=||Initial No Lights or Sirens, Upgraded to Lights and Sirens|
|Emergent (Immediate Response)||=||Lights and Sirens|
|Non-Emergent||=||No Lights or Sirens|
We have numerous reports in the system that pull from "Response Mode" that all still work. Just remember the equivalent values between NEMSIS 3 and NEMSIS 2 when selecting "Response Mode" from the system report.
Example: Report #1641 - Aggregate Response Time Compliance by Incident Type for Response Mode and Date Range
