Calls within the base will remain the same as today just seven digits 257-XXXX, 255-XXXX, etc.
Dialing 911 on or off base will not change.
You will need to add the 937 area code to all phone numbers you have programmed into your cell phones or other off-base devices, such as life safety systems, PBXs, fax machines, internet dial-up numbers, alarm and security systems or gates, speed dialers, call forwarding settings, voice service, etc.
This addition of the area code for local telephone calls will become mandatory on Feb. 8. New 326 telephone numbers are expected to begin utilization in March. Below is a map showing the area serviced by 937/326 area codes.
