Description: ‘The incident number is a unique sequence number (unique within a given day.)’
Specification Comment: This is NOT necessarily the incident identification number, however in case with CAD (Computer Aided Dispatch) generates an identifier as an incrementing sequence number throughout the year, this can work.
‘Incident Number (Identifier)’ is a key element, so it is in pretty much all transactions.
|Element Type||Numeric - Integer numbers (no decimal points). If the user has not provided information, an empty field should be transmitted. All integer values are assumed to be positive. Any fields which allow a negative integer value have been denoted with ‘+ or –’ in the comment field. Negative numbers should be transmitted with the minus sign preceding the digits. - Maximum length 7 characters|
