Many jurisdictions use some kind of "mission tasking resource control" or mission identification numbering system. The one in the example was: Orange County RACES 96-002. This serves several purposes. It helps the issuing agency identify the event, and it provides similar identification for responding agencies as well as enhancing the official status.
