Hurricane Resource and Relief Toll Free Numbers Available

At the start of hurricane season, weather forecasters have just predicted a high rate of hurricanes this summer of 2010–double the typical amount of strong storms for southern California and the East Coast. But government officials are offering toll free phone numbers in many states for information on resources, preparation and relief. Call 1-800-FED-INFO for information on hurricane resources before the 2010s storms hit. These numbers are just one way the federal state and local officials use toll free to stay connected to their constituents throughout the United States.

Supply of Toll Free Numbers Running Depleted?

The question of just how many really good toll free numbers remain available for new subscribers continues to circle throughout the telecommunications world. While we don’t have a precise figure, we can say for certain that the well is running dry. Experts advise that anyone interested in a toll free number should consider getting one immediately. There are an average of between 6,000 and 8,000 new toll free numbers registered daily. With a limited number of numerical possibilities, the finite supply could eventually be depleted.
