Most of the departments use a two digit town/city code plus a 1 or 2 digit unit code.
Apparatus is assigned numbers as follows:

    1=Engine          7=Utility
    2=Engine          8=Rescue/Ambulance  
    3=Engine          9=Ambulance
    4=Tanker         10=
    5=Ladder/Aerial  11=
    6=Brush          12= 

As an example, 301 is a Brewer Engine. 364 is a Tanker from Orrington. 309 is a Brewer Ambulance.

Officers/members are identified in two ways. Most use a four digit code that is their town/city ID plus a two digit within town/city ID, such as 2401, 2404, etc.
Some identify as town/city name plus a within town/city ID, for example Mattawamkeag 12.
