Check your Preprogrammed Area Code 919 (North Carolina – Durham and Surrounding Areas)

Eastern Wake News is reporting that 2 years after the introduction to 10 digit dialing, there still about 100 dispatches by 911 operators from hang-up calls.

Calling 911 and hanging up often results in an officer being dispatched to the phone number’s listed address.

While many calls have been attributed to people dialing the 919 area code and accidentally hitting the “1” twice, there are apparently a large number of fax machine calls.

If you have any area code 919 and North Carolina fax numbers programmed into your fax, now would be a good time to double check that they’re entered correctly.
