DIAL 8 INSTEAD OF 9 TO MAKE OUTBOUND CALLS FROM YOUR BEAUDRY PHONE

8 IS THE NEW 9

 

DIAL 8 INSTEAD OF 9 TO MAKE OUTBOUND CALLS  FROM YOUR BEAUDRY PHONE

 

WHAT:  Currently, Beaudry occupants must first dial-9 to complete phone calls to numbers outside of the Beaudry building.  The dial-out number is being transitioned to “8”.

 

WHEN:   Transition timeline

  • Beginning October 21, 2019 through November 22, 2019, both dial-9 and dial-8 will access an outside line.
  • Beginning November 23, 2019, only dial-8 will access an outside line. Dial-9 will no longer access an outside line.

 

WHY:  The District is looking to reduce the number of accidental calls made to emergency services (911) due to the use of the dial-9 prefix.

 

WHO IS IMPACTED:  All Beaudry employees, contractors and guests who use Building phones and fax machines

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO:  Begin dialing “8” to complete outbound calls, immediately.  If you have numbers programmed into your desk phone, please update those, as well.
