“Now is the time to confirm that your family, your business and all of your devices are ready for the switch to ten-digit dialing, so we have a smooth transition on April 3rd – especially things like medical alert systems, alarms, and any other systems that automatically make calls.”


It’s crunch time. The PA PUC sent out a reminder on Monday (including the excerpt above) that mandatory ten-digit dialing in the 814 area code begins on Saturday April 3, 2021. The new dialing requirement is part of the transition to the 582 area code overlay which will commence when numbers in the 814 code are exhausted.
