You'll need to update the following codes:

10-27 Compactor or incinerator fire (fire has not extended from compactor shaft)

10-31 Assist civilian (All calls, other then medical calls; i.e. good intent, stuck elevators, lockouts)

10-37 Medical assignment not associated with fire operation. Definitions of codes 1, 2, and 3 remain the same. Add Code 4: Medical assignment where the unit is 10-84, has no patient contact and EMS is on scene. This includes when a unit is assigned to protect EMS by diverting or blocking traffic at a highway incident.

10-91 Medical emergency with no FD action required. (i.e. First Responder run canceled or downgraded).

I'm not sure where the 10-88 came from. All the other codes are more or less correct.
