In the State of Connecticut, EMS to Hospital communications take place on what is known as the "CMED" channels. CMED is short for Centralized Medical Emergency Direction. Connecticut has several regional communications centers that serve the more rural areas of the state and they also act as coordination centers in the metro areas as well. Many towns and cities will dispatch medical resources to an incident and such EMS resources will then sign on with the area CMED. These CMED's track times, provide ambulance to hospital radio patches, telemetry information, MCI and mutual aid coordination. Each area uses its own unique PL tone as well as a standard statewide PL tone. Any ambulance can contact an area hospital on any Med channel as directed by the CMED telecommunicator. Listed in the database are known standard assignments, but due to traffic/call volumes any channel can be used as necessary. Med-9 and Med-10 are common dispatch/sign on channels.
