The above data is the number of calls dealt with and closed at that grading, rather than the number of calls initially generated at that grading. For example, if there are several I grade calls to one incident, the first call received remains the ‘Working’ call. Additional calls received become R grades, with any pertinent information from them added to the ‘working’ I grade call.
