The D.C. Department of General Services has issued an updated list of the most frequently called District government telephone numbers.

The city also has changed its referral system. If you call the old number for the District operator, 628-6000, you will be referred by the telephone company to the new number, 727-1000. The operator will give out the direct dial number for the office the caller wants, and connect the caller with that office.

The telephone number for emergency calls for police, fire or ambulance is still 911.
