START is used to categorize a patient’s priority status before moving them to the triage area. The initial assessment to categorize a patient by color is done by using ARPM and should not exceed 30 seconds.
Red: Immediate care and transport required (Priority 1).
Yellow: Delayed care and transport (Priority 2).
Green: Only minor injuries (Priority 3).
Black: Deceased or fatal injuries (Priority 4).
