    We use a combination of plain text and 10 codes. Most of our ten codes are for privacy issues, our EMS use a form of 10 codes ie. 15charlie7, because they use a ProQ and A (professional question and answer) software program in their dispatch. My opinion is to use plain text as much as possible but keep it consice and short, what I like to refer to as the KISS approach (keep it simple stupid). Leave the 10 codes for the privacy issues.

      We use plain text here in NE Ohio with the exception of code 6 for a check up.
      Plain text is just easier, there's no need to be long- winded, except for initial size up.
      Personally i'd rather hear a company pull up and report a " two story single family dwelling with smoke showing from the eaves" than " on scene with a working fire"
      Just my opinion based on a little experience.
