Dialing 10 Digits and New Area Code

With Missouri preparing to add another area code in the same geographic region, the Missouri Public Service Commission is advising residents to update their safety and security equipment now. Scott Rupp tells Missourinet the 573 area code will be getting a new 235 overlay in March…

Medical alert devices and alarm and security systems must be programmed to use the full 10-digit dialing. Any equipment reprogramming must be done as soon as possible. All local calls within the 573 area code must be done with the full 10 digits.
