10-Digit Dialing Is Now In Effect

A reminder that you now need to dial the area code when making any phone call – even if it’s across the street. That’s because the creation of a new suicide prevention code which uses the numbers 9-8-8. The new code doesn’t take effect until the middle of next year but the 10-digit change is being made now so people get used to it. Not using the area code results in a “call cannot be completed” message.
