Telephone codes change March 12

Telephone access calling codes will change, effective 5 p.m. Friday, March 12, for all government operated and owned landline telephones at Fort McCoy. The change is based on a directive from the 7th Signal Command.

Jon Prell of the Fort McCoy Network Enterprise Center (NEC) said the change will improve customer service by establishing standard dialing procedures for landline phones at all Army installations, organizations or activities.

Things that won’t change for phone calls made between landline phones at Fort McCoy are the local 388-prefix calls, which still will be made by dialing 2 and then the four-digit extension. The new dial access codes are: DSN (Defense Switched Network), 94; long-distance or local calls excluding 388-prefix, 97; toll-free or operator-assisted, 99; on-post extension (no change), 2 plus last four digits.

No action is needed to effect this change, Prell said. Members of the work force who have numbers saved to speed dial or redial must reprogram these numbers before 5 p.m. March 12. Organizations served by the NEC that need help reconfiguring the autodial features on their telephones can submit a work order through their organization’s Telephone Control Officer.

Any questions or concerns about the change can be addressed to the NEC Service Desk at 608-388-3737.
