Telecom NewsBytes 220211- New 988 National Suicide Lifeline and MLTS PBX

Last year, the new 3-digit shortcode of 9-8-8 was designated as the new dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Normally reachable at 1-800-273-talk (8255). 

While some areas may already be able to connect to the Lifeline by dialing 988, the new dialing code is scheduled to be available to everyone across the United States starting on July 16, 2022. You should enable this on your MLTS PBX as well.
