Orange County, utilizes a dual approach to unit identification. While listening to the Green Channels, you will most likely here units refered to as 10-Charles or 11-Sam. Whereas while listening to Countywide channels such as Red, you will here units refered to as 18-Sam-111. To better assist you I have broken this section up into two segments, Countywide and Citywide
