Phone Numbers

Important: These numbers are local calls in the specified areas. If you are not sure if you are in an area, try calling the ten digit number (area code plus seven). If you get a high pitched modem tone, then it is a local call. Do Not put a 1 in front of the number (making a total of eleven digits). Doing so might result in long distance fees, which you will be responsible for paying.
