Radio Codes

When making radio transmissions, we generally use codes to signify the message we wish to convey. Sometimes, this is for the sake of brevity and clarify. Other times, we use code for the sake of avoiding panic. We have to remember that students are often in a position to overhear radio transmissions; they are likely to panic if they hear a message about a person in possession of a firearm. In cases such as these, it is crucial that we use the code, such as "417G," so that we can address the situation in a calm, orderly manner.

Code 4 Situation is under control
