Mandatory 11-Digit Dialing

11-digit dialing (1 + area code + telephone number) is required to complete all local calls within the 209 area code

Starting July 16, 2022, the 9-8-8 Mental Health Crisis Lifeline becomes fully implemented, but until then customers must continue to dial 1-800-273-TALK to reach the National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Crisis Lifeline.
