Hosted by

In the aftermath of the attacks on September 11, police, fire and other agencies had trouble talking to one another, in part because they used different codes to describe what was going on. Ever since, there's been an effort to replace the codes with plain English, most recently in Dallas, Texas. Eric Aasen writes for the Dallas Morning News.
