New Dialing Procedure for Texans in the 254 Area Code
Beginning April 24, 2021, anyone calling a number in the 254 area code (the area code assigned to Waco) is advised to dial all 10 digits of the phone number (area code + telephone number) for all calls, including local calls. This change is necessary to accommodate emergency calls to 988 as a new abbreviated three-digit dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Because some numbers within the 254 area code contain 988 in their prefix, the transition from seven-digit phone numbers to 10-digit phone numbers for local dialing is necessary.
