Cincinnati 7 digit dialing is going away this weekend and will be replaced with 10 digit dialing.
The FCC announced the move in February, saying it is due to the implementation of the National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Crisis Lifeline.
They say the helpline will be able to be reached by dialing 988 on July 16, 2022. Before that date, individuals must dial 1-800-273-TALK to reach the helpline.
FCC officials say for the new line to work, 10-digital dialing must be required in 513 and 859 area codes starting Oct. 24
