Its not eight point eight, its an eight eight, just like with vehilces, its a three four, not a three point four.

Bit like when you catch a bus, 866 for example, its eight six six not the eight sixty six or eight hundred and sixty six.

Not completely true. If you have a 4wd 4000litre appliance, you cant exactly call in and say, "York 44" - could be taken as an arrival code.

If you add the 'point', its a bit clearer - You'll find all new vehicles have the callsign marked on the side *with* the 'point'.

44 = Not as reported / nothing found
66 = Minor incident
88 = Major incident

Nothing to do with back-up... One unit can deal with an 88 if it has the resources on board. The alarm classification determines units on site...

Plus a two point four is said "Two point four".

how often does one vehicle tackle an 8.8? if its an 8.8 why is there only one appliance there.
2 point 4 sounds silly 4 point 4 is the only one that needs the point

Please correct me if I'm wrong but a rescue job such as retrieving injured person(s) from a car crash can be classified as an 'eight eight' but can be handled by one rescue tender.

u would expect more than one appliance on the way if its an 8.8 rescue

"Two point four" might sound silly, but it's still used, depends on the person who's holding the radio.

..and even though it's not common, Steve is correct, especially in a regional area.

The FESA Fire Services SOP's actually have it written a little differently, ie:

66 = Arrived, incident found can be handled with resources mobilised.
88 = Arrived, extensive incident requiring urgent assistance.

and it makes specific note that 88 needs to be followed up by an 'alarm classification' (in simple terms, each alarm = another station required).

for example, a message might be:

6AR from Malaga, 88 make 4th alarm.

(mind you, most people say 'arrived' which is superfluous, as its an arrival code you're giving!)

Once again, incorrect.. the SOP's do not state anything to do wtih backup.
(You might want to check the date on those SOP's you're quoting. :D )

I say again:

44 = Not as reported / nothing found
66 = As reported, Minor incident
88 = As reported, Major incident

Alarm classification is used to identify back-up.
