    This is the reason why it is used for all major emergency services in the U.S. and Canada. Military time is a method used to measure the time based on a 24 hour clock instead of using two groups of 12 hours each. For easy reference in communications, a letter of the alphabet has been assigned to each time zone. The military operates off a 24-hour clock, beginning at midnight (which is 0000 hours). Is zero two hundred (0200) hours, and so on until 11 p.m. The next portion of the military time code will tell the recipient that you are referring to a full hour (e.g., five o’clock) and not a time in-between full hours (e.g., half past five). The real fun starts after 12 noon when the 12-hour system jumps all the way back to 1 while the 24-hour system just keeps counting upward. In other words, for the period from 1 pm to 12 am, you have to subtract 12 to convert to the 12-hour format. Military time is a format for expressing time based on the 24-hour clock. It uses a special notation and pronunciation geared toward clarity and conciseness.
