CPUC Provides More Numbers for 209 Area Code with 350 Overlay

Sacramento, CA...The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) today acted to ensure that phone numbers continue to be available to meet the demand in the geographic region served by the 209 area code by approving a second area code (called an overlay) that will provide additional numbering resources while minimizing customer inconvenience. The new area code to overlay the 209 area code is 350.




The 209 area code, serving portions of Alameda, Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Escalon, Fresno, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Tuolumne counties, is projected to run out of available prefixes (the first three numbers after the area code in a phone number) by the fourth quarter of 2022. The CPUC’s action today approves the request of the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA), the neutral third-party area code relief planner for California, for approval of an area code overlay to provide additional numbering resources to meet the demand for telephone numbers.

An area code overlay adds a second area code to the geographic region served by the existing area code. Therefore, multiple area codes co-exist within the same geographic region. Existing 209 customers will retain their area code and specific telephone number(s). Customers will continue to dial the three-digit area code for all calls to and from telephone numbers with the 209 and 350 area codes. The price of a call will not change due to the overlay. Customers can still dial just three digits to reach 911, as well as 211, 311, 411, 511, 611, 711, and 811.

Below are some tips to help prepare for the area code overlay:

Contact security or alarm vendors to update dial-up numbers to avoid a break in security routines and contacts.
Reprogram equipment or features, i.e., automatic dial, speed-dial, call forwarding, modems for computer or Internet dial-up access, etc.

Update items like stationery, checks, etc., to include your area code + telephone number.
Provide your area code and telephone number, not just the telephone number, as needed.
When asking for someone’s number, remember to ask for the area code, too.

Remember that the previous area code and the new area code will co-exist within the same geographic region.
The 209 area code was created when it split off the 415 area code in 1958. It was split again in 1997 to form the 559 area code. The 209 area code serves the cities of Angels Camp, Atwater, Ceres, Dos Palos, Galt, Gustine, Hughson, Ione, Lathrop, Livingston, Lodi, Los Banos, Manteca, Merced, Modesto, Newman, Oakdale, Patterson, Plymouth, Ripon, Riverbank, Sonora, Stockton, Tracy, Turlock, and Waterford. The 209 area code also covers Yosemite National Park and Kirkwood Mountain Resort.

The proposal voted on is available at https://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/PublishedDocs/Published/G000/M476/K404/476404763.PDF.

Documents related to the proceeding are available at https://apps.cpuc.ca.gov/apex/f?p=401:56:0::NO:RP,57,RIR:P5_PROCEEDING_SELECT:A2104007.

More information on the 209 area code is available at www.cpuc.ca.gov/209areacode.

The CPUC regulates services and utilities, protects consumers, safeguards the environment, and assures Californians’ access to safe and reliable utility infrastructure and services. For more information on the CPUC, please visit www.cpuc.ca.gov.

      "No Doxing"

      Call it what you want.

      In this case it is transparency as to who the mentally deranged are in our communities. The citizens demand full transparency and have the right to know.

It is important to know: "Anyone with 209 number now will still have it. However, customers will have to dial the three-digit area code for all calls to and from telephone numbers with the 209 and 350 area codes. Officials said the price of a call won't change in due to the overlay."

Did you know Democrats murder more people in the USA then ANYONE?
Posted on: 2022-05-25 11:54:00   By: Anonymous
 

And under our Socialist Dictatorship the murder rate along with MASS SHOOTINGS are SKYROCKETING TO NEVER SEEN BEFORE NUMBERS!!!!
"147 mass shootings across the country since Joe took office with 45 such events in just the past 30-days. Under Trump there were 35. That’s a 6100% increase in mass shootings under Joe Biden"
And what does Biden do? He blames gun makers. He says it's time to do the right thing, but that it. Time to do the right thing, what Joe? Mental health issues like the Buffalo shooter? Tougher gun laws like in Buffalo? Well the shooter had mental health problems, he was red flagged as he should not of been able to buy any gun, but your DOJ is too busy covering up for their war against school parents or terrorist as the DOJ and teacher unions call them. The FBI which is guilty in the spying on Trump campaine. 40 million dollars spent, 17 FBI lawyers, and they failed to see Russian Collision was a hoax by Hillary and the DNC. Yet one Special Investigator named John Durham uncovered TRAITORS spying on a President, in a quicker time and certainly less expensive then the DOJ, CIA and FBI because they're like the mainstream Media, Democrat biased, Bigoted.
Maybe Joe instead of blabbering telling us to do the right thing, maybe get off your wrinkled, old, senile, useless ass and start doing things. You abandoned 85 Billion Dollars in Afghanistan, gave another 40 Billion Dollars to Ukraine, why don't you start making our schools safer? Don't defund the police, put armed officers in school? Make school grounds fenced in? More security at schools? Stop letting criminals out of prison? Use a gun, do the time, not like in New York where the criminals can shoot at even the police and can be released with no bail?
So Joe, 🖕and saying it's time to do the right thing. 🖕 Gavin Newsom who says we have a budget ( it's a lie by the way) surplus of 90 Billion Dollars, if that's true give it back to the tax payers who are being ripped off by you in the most expensive stayed in the union. Or take that 90 Billion Dollars and don't give it to illegals, give it to our schools across the state to make them safer from the mentally ill.

Shootings
Posted on: 2022-05-25 12:42:47   By: Anonymous
 

I was just thinking of something because of the above post. When Joe was our VP for 8 years under President Obama, not once did I ever hear of either address the weekly shootings in Chicago ( Obama even lived there) probably the most shootings in any city in American. There's already over 2000 shooting victims this year. I did hear Trump ask mayor Lori lightfoot if she wanted his help he'd bring in the federal government and help, and being a democrat, she was also a bigot and wanted nothing, no help what so ever. Did Biden or Obama ever care enough to even ask? NOPE. You only hear about it from a democrat when they can use it politically. Like the lying Dem politician, Beto O'Rourke, who said when trying to win the Dem candidate for president said I'm coming for your guns, your AK-47 your AR-15, remember? Now he's running for the governor of Texas and he's saying he's running to protect your 2nd Right Amendment. Can you believe that chit?
Protect our children like we protect our politicians, hell, our children are more pure then those lying, cheating corrupt crooks, Hands Down.

Another Democrat using Dead children for political reasons only
Posted on: 2022-05-25 12:57:30   By: Anonymous
 

This is O'Rourke in Texas, there are parents in the room that lost children from that shooting and now he's turned again, DO NOTHING BUT MAKING A POLITICAL STATEMENT UPSETTING THOSE PARENTS EVEN WORSE.
You can't take away all the guns, it's Impossible! You can make schools better secured, but nobody does it. Let's see Gavin do it with that 90 Billion Dollars of Surplus the Democrats rip away from us every FUKING year. If we have that much surplus we are being over taxed.
Here's the *bleep* O'Rourke who was forcibly escorted out.

    You can disagree with what Beto said, but do you disagree with the fact that AR weapons are too easy to obtain?

Border Patrol Agents Rock, Even If Biden Hates Them Like He Does Our Law Enforcement Officers
Posted on: 2022-05-25 13:17:27   By: Anonymous
 
Headline News
"Often vilified by liberals, Border Patrol agents rushed into Texas school to neutralize shooter"


It was a Border Patrol agent who ran into the school without backup to confront and kill the gunman.

Border Patrol Agents , often vilified by progressive members of the Democratic Party, were among the first to arrive on the scene of the mass shooting at an elementary school in Texas on Tuesday. One Border Patrol agent is reported to have "shot and killed" the 18-year-old gunman.
U.S. Border Patrol Agents responded to a law enforcement request for assistance [for] an active shooter situation inside Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. Upon entering the building, Agents & other law enforcement officers faced gun fire from the subject, who was barricaded inside."
The agents placed "themselves between the shooter and children on the scene to draw the shooter's attention away from potential victims and save lives," she continued. "At least one Border Patrol Agent was wounded by the shooter during the exchange of gunfire. On-and-off duty Border Patrol Agents arrived on the scene to assist with transferring students safely to their families and providing medical support."

*** Border Patrol agents accused (by the Biden administration) of whipping illegal Haitian migrants last year. The report has not yet been released. President Joe Biden, at the time of the incident, said the agents would "pay" for their alleged actions. ~ THAT'S HOW MUCH BIDEN RESPECTS OUR MEN AND WOMEN WHO RISK THEIR LIVES DAILY FOR NOT ONLY US, BUT ALL PEOPLE HERE NO MATTER WHAT.
Did you notice Dementia Joe never even apologized to our Agents after he said they whipped immigrants? Neither did our VP Whore, another reason the majority of our Military, and First Responders said they have no Respect for Joe and the Hoe. But strange, criminals do.

    Turn off FauxNews and OAN.
    Get the facts.
    Our President doesn't hate LE.
    He also doesn't need to apologize for what he said about the treatment of the Haitian immigrants in THAT particular incident. I guess you approve of how those particular immigrants were herded like cattle using lassos.
    And YOUR lack of respect towards our VP by calling her a Hoe is appalling. You have proof of her doing improper acts I suppose? Or you just repeating what you're told.
    Looking in the mirror you must picture virtue and honesty.
    WWJD?

      That's not from oann, fox or Newsmax.
      But unlike you I do not get my news from the view or the lowest rated cable news in America the Cartoon National Network.
      Unlike you who is easily manipulated even by cartoons I will search different news sources, or articles I have interest in and I am not a registered Republican, but I believe they are not a corrupt as the Democrats, and I'm not a felon and have never been convicted of a crime. Unlike the majority of the left.

HUNTER'S LAPTOP MAY NOW BE NATIONAL SECURITY THREAT
Posted on: 2022-05-25 14:10:54   By: Anonymous
 

It's more of a threat to President Biden being Impeached, because it will prove of his family Laundering Money.

"Information about Hunter Biden’s laptop has continued to surface and the latest is seen as a possible national security threat. Recent reports have suggested emails from that laptop show Hunter helped an infection disease research company with bioweapons projects in Ukraine.

This came after Russia made similar accusations, which were dismissed as propaganda. However, this means Russia potentially has access to material that is compromising for the US, in turn, adding to likely national security threats posed by information on the laptop."

      I'd rather see that that a pic of Trump, naked, sitting on the throne at Mira Lago, tearing up, then eating, classified documents, then *bleep*ttting them out, clogging up the lines, and calling for secret service to unclog them. That's what the tax payers are paying for folks. A plumber to unclog lines at Mira Lago that trump clogged up destroying documents. Nice ay?
