SA Ambulance Service reported ambulance responses by priority

The number of SA Ambulance service reported responses by priority, calendar year and quarter. A response is the dispatch of an ambulance service vehicle. There may be multiple responses to a single incident. Responses are prioritised as per incidents, but in some instances responses to the same incident may be dispatched with different priorities (e.g. a code 1 response to a code 1 incident may be supported by an additional code 2 response as a back-up).

Responses are prioritised as : emergency (code 1) — immediate response under lights and sirens required (incident is potentially life threatening); urgent (code 2) — undelayed response required without lights and sirens (arrival desirable within 30 minutes); *Non-emergency (code 3 and code 4) non-urgent response by required ambulance or patient transport service; and casualty room attendance.
