Assigning Strike Team/Task Force Numbers

The resource designation system utilizes the block numbering concept. All numbers include four digits followed by a single letter (i.e., 1234-A). Numbers and letter indicate: mutual aid region, agency or operational area, individual group numbers, kind and type of resource.

Block Numbers - OES Mutual Aid Regions

The 6 mutual aid regions will consist of six blocks of 1000 numbers each. Example: Mutual Aid Region I - 1000 to 1999

    Sub Blocks (i.e., 1000 to 1099) may be assigned to operational area or large single agency such as L.A. City F.D., thus the 4 digits would reflect:

Area or Agency (3LD) Region Area or Agency Grouped Resource No. Kind and Type
LFD 1 0 01 A

Any series of number within a block becomes synonymous with the area or department to which it is assigned.

Block Numbers - California Department of Forestry

Because CDF uses a 4 digit resources numbering system on a daily basis within its administrative regions, mutual aid region numbers might be duplicated. Thus, CDF will utilize a modified block number in the 9000 series statewide. Example: 9100 to 9199 block is assigned to CDF Region I.

Area or Agency (3LD) CDF Region Area or Agency Grouped Resource No. Kind and Type
CDF 9 1 1 1 C

NOTE: CDF utilizes blocks 9000-9499, which leaves 9500-9999 not allocated.
