20. Fire Location Identification.
Column A, 3. Payment Unit Code. (Organization Code)
This 4 digit code should be left blank when completing the AD-288 at the fire site.
The rules for completing this block are: When you are transmitting the the fire time report information to NFC, the TRANSMITTING UNIT SHOULD ENTER THEIR REGION AND UNIT NUMBER. The reason for this is, NFC needs information in order to send the audit report to validate payments. In some cases, this may not be the location of the ADO but, there is no other point of reference in the electronic file.
When you are submitting the fire time report in hardcopy for input by NFC, then the submitting region and unit number should apppear in this block.
Please advise all users of this practice.
In the event you feel frusterated, we had planned on having all of the new direction published and the new CETR system operational by now. Unfortunately, this didnot occur as planned. However, it is still going to happen.
