Various Identification Codes ...

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies created a set of codes with a purpose similar to the GNIS codes. These codes are called the Federal Information Processing Standard (or the FIPS 55 codes). Although they are still used by some organizations, the FIPS codes are obsolete and will ultimately be replaced by the GNIS codes.

The following FIPS codes apply to Fort Huachuca:

Place (Community) Code:  24670
State Code:  04 (Arizona)
County Code:  003 (Cochise County)

Since the Place and County FIPS codes are not unique and can be repeated in other States, it's necessary to combine the State code with the Place and County FIPS codes to uniquely identify them - for example:

State/Place Code:  04/24670
State/County Code:  04/003

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Fort Huachuca is located in Region #4 (the West Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Fort Huachuca is located in Division #8 (the Mountain Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Fort Huachuca is located in Region IX (Region 9).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Fort Huachuca is located in Region IX (Region 9).

ZIP Codes ...

While some people have used ZIP codes to identify a community, the ZIP codes were actually created to make mail delivery more efficient by grouping addresses together. Although a ZIP Code doesn't specifically identify a community like Fort Huachuca, they do identify addresses that are in (or near) the community. It's important to remember that the boundaries of a ZIP Code are defined by the needs of the USPS and can be changed, re-assigned or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.
