"code black" on grey’s anatomy could be anything, apparently

Every hospital or clinic has its own system for disseminating information about emergencies, and lots of them seem to use the term “Code” plus a color or number to signify exactly what kind of emergency is occurring. I know “Code Red” and “Code Blue” are both terms that are sometimes used to refer to a cardiopulmonary arrest, but other types of emergencies (for example bomb threats, terrorist activity, child abductions, or mass casualties) may be given “Code” designations too.
