THE IDENTITY SYSTEM

Telephone Numbers

Use the figures only, without the word telephone preceding them. Area code is not enclosed in parentheses but is followed by a hyphen.

817-272-2101

An exception to the previous rule is when both the telephone number and the fax number are given. Use the following format for such instances.

Telephone: 817-272-2101

Fax: 817-272-2139

In all internal communications, use the five digits of the phone number with a hyphen. Do not use the word extension or the abbreviation ext. in telephone references. In external communications always include the area code.

2-2101
