Wow! Okay, gather round for some quick training.
An Aid Car is very much a ambulance or medic chasis, used to respond and at times transport a BLS (Basic Life Support) patient. And in rare occasion a ALS (Advanced Life Support) patient with a Paramedic riding providing patient care with the assistance of a BLS-trained FF/EMT.
This whole Code Red/Yellow thing you about have figured out.
Code 3 : Lights and Sirens : Code Red
Code 1 : NO lights or sirens. Traveling with traffic flow. : Code Yellow
These are probably Pacific NW specific terms. More agency specific due to the confusion on these.
