Annoyance Calls

It is a crime under both Alabama and federal
laws for anyone to make obscene or harassing
phone calls. These laws impose penalties of not
more than 6 months Imprisonment and/or a fine
of not more than $500.

The Telephone Company is concerned about ol)-
scene and harassing calls and is trying to help
stop them. You don't have to talk or listen to
such calls - just hang up. If the calls persist, call
your Telephone Company Service Office. If a
threat is made at any time, also call the police.



Knowing About Fraudulent Calls

For your protection, new equipment and proce-
dures enable the Telephone Company to detect
and investigate fraudulent calls. State law pro-
vides that no person shall defraud or attempt to
defraud the Telephone Company of its lawful
charges. Violators, upon conviction, are subject
to imprisonment of up to one year or to a fine of
up to $1,000 or both.



Emergency Calls on Party Lines—
Warning:

The law of Alabama provides that any person
who fails to relinquish a telephone party line,
consisting of subscriber line telephone circuit
with two (2) or more telephone stations con-
nected therewith each having a distinctive ring or
telephone number, after he has been requested
to do so, to permit another to place a call in an
emergency in which property o r human life are
In jeopardy and the prompt summoning of aid is
essential, to a fire or police department or for
medical aid or ambulance service, shall be guilty
of a misdemeanor. Provided however, such party
line at the time of the request is not being used
for any such other emergency call. Any person
who shall request the use of such party line by
falsely stating that the same is needed for any of
said purposes, knowing said statement to be
false, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.



Attachments to Telephones

The Telephone Company furnishes all equipment
necessary to provide telephone service. In the
interest of safety and good service, no equip-
ment, apparatus or devices not furnished by the
Telephone Company may be attached to, or
used or connected with, its facilities, except as
provided in the Company's tariffs.



Automatic Answering Set

Certain telephones are equipped with an auto-
matic device, known as an automatic answering
set. which answers the telephone mechanically.
It then makes a recorded announcement. If your
call is answered by an automatic answering set,
listen carefully for the announcement which will
be self-explanatory. Some sets will also record a
message from the caller.



Customer Provided Equipment

Customer provided equipment may be con-
nected to Telephone Company facilities only if it
Is registered or otherwise complies with the
FCC's rules and meets the conditions set forth in
the Company's tariffs. Advance notification to
the Telephone Company, by the customer, of the
type of equipment to be connected and the type
of Telephone Company facility required to make
the connections is necessary. These FCC rules
and tariffs are designed to meet the convenience
of the customer and at the same time protect the
telephone network against any possible hazards
to customers and Company employees.

A service charge may be incurred if the Tele-
phone Company visits the premises of the cus-
tomer and the service difficulty or trouble is
found to have been caused by the customer's
equipment or facilities.

If you have any questions concerning the use of
customer provided equipment, please contact
your Service Office.



When You Hear a "Beep" Tone

A short "beep" tone heard on your telephone line
about every 15 seconds means that the person
with whom you are talking is recording your con-
versatkw. This signal is provkJed for your protec-
tion. In most instances, the use of a recorder
without a tone-warning devrce is contrary to the
Company's tariffs and is not permitted. If you do
not want a record made of what you are saying,
ask the person with whom you are talking to dis-
connect tfie recording machine. When it is discon-
nected, you will no longer hear the "beep" tone.

Telephone safety

The telephone is one of the safest appliances in your
home or office. There are, however, a few situations
wtiere a telephone user needs to be cautious.

Use of the telephone near water The telephone should
not be used while you are in a bathtub, shower or pool.
Immersion of the telephone or handset in water could
cause an electrical shock.

Use of the telephone during an electrical storm: You

should avoid using a telephone during an electrical
storm in your immediate area; calls of an urgent nature
should be brief. Although the GTE System uses protec-
tive measures to limit abnormal electrical surges from
entering your home, absolute protection is impossible.
There is a remote risk of a dangerous electrical shock
from lightning when using the telephone during a
nearby electrical storm.

Use of the telephone to report a gas leak: If you think
you've found a gas leak, you should not use a tele-
phone in the vicinity of the leak until the leak is repaired.
The telephone contains electrical contacts that could
generate a tiny spark when you lift the handset and dial.
While unlikely, it may be possible for this spark to trig-
ger an explosion if the gas concentration is high
enough.

Use of resklence telephones for business purposes

Residence services are installed with the understanding
that they will be used for normal social or domestic
purposes. A residence service will be changed to
busiriess service if used primarily or substantially for
business purposes, or, if the residence telephone
number is advertised in connection with the sale of
products or servk:es.

Calling Area Information - see map and Dialing instructions on Page 11.



Calling Area: a geographical boundary
established to define areas telephone com-
panies provide local and long distance ser-
vices plus access to the telephone net-
work.



Alabama has been assigned four calling
areas: Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and
Montgomery. You are in the Montgomery
calling area which is the unshaded area on
the map on page 11. Some catling areas
cross state boundaries.



Calls Within The Same
Calling Area

(Unshaded Area on map)

Long distance charges may apply to some
calls within your calling area. General Tele-
phone can provide both local and long dis-
tance service within a calling area. How-
ever we do not provide long distance ser-
vice from one calling area to another
(shaded areas on the map). You may con-
tinue to dial long distance within the same
calling area just as you have always done.



Calls Outside Your Calling Area

(Shaded Areas on map)

Telephone calls that cross calling area
boundaries become that of the long dis-
tance carrier to which the customer subsc-
ribes.

For the names of those companies which
provide long distance service between call-
ing areas and which identified themselves
to us at the time of the publication of this
directory, please consult the Yellow Pages
under "Telephone Companies."

If you do not follow the specific Instructions
of another long distance company, but in-
stead choose the 1 + /O + dialing method,
your calls will be automatically transmitted
by AT&T Communications.



Rates are lowest when you dial the calls
yourself.

Holiday rates apply on the legal holidays
for Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Inde-
pendence Day, Latx)r Day, and Thanksgiv-
ing Day unless a lower rate would normally
apply.

Types of Calls



Thre« Basic Kindt of Long Distance Calls

Customer Dialed, Station-to-Station Call is the least ex-
pensive type of call. If the customer dials the call direct
without "OPERATOR" assistance, the customer is
charged at tf>e lowest rate.

Operator-assisted Station-to-Station Call requires "OP-
ERATOR" assistance for completion. The customer will
talk with anyorte who answers, txjt needs an "OPERA-
TOR'S" aid to reach the number. Examples of such caNs
are coin, collect and telephone calling card calls; calls
tMHed to third numt)er: code tMliing (spedai billing nunrv
bers). guests, time and charges and sequence cal».

Person-to-Person Call, the most expensive type of call
for those occasions when the customer wishes to speak
directly to a partk:ular person, telephone, department or
office reached through a customer's switchboard (PBX).

Station-to-station

CaH statk>n-to statk)n if you wish to talk with anyone who
answers. Rates for calls that you dial yourself are kywer
than for calls dialed by the operator. Charging begins
when the called telephone is answered. When a private
automatk: answerina servwe is reached, the customer is
btled for the call. (Tnis should not be cor>fused with tele-
phone company recorded announcements.)

Person-to-Person

Call person-to-person when you wish to talk to a partic-
ular person or extenston number. Tell the "OPERA-
TOR " you wish to make a "person-to-person ' call.
Rates are higher than statiorvto-station and also apply
when you talk to an alternate person or extenskx).
Charging starts when conversatk>n t)egin8.

Conference

You can talk with several people in different places at
the sanne time. Tell the 'OPERATOR" you wish to make
a "conference" call. A spedai charge will be made for
this type of can.

Collect

You can can 'collect " if the person or firm you are call-
ing agrees to pay the charge. If you want to make a
"collect" can. please be sure to tell the "OPERATOR "
when you place the call.



Telephone Calling Card

Customers who have telephone calling cards may place
calls and charge them to their card number. These cans
require "OPERATOR " asssistance to record the calling
card number and may be person-to-person. Customers
may apply for a callir>g card by calling their Servrce Of-
fk:e.

Calls Charged to Another Numt>er

Customers may place calls and transfer the charge to
another telephone. This servrce requires "OPERATOR"
assistance. The call may be either statk>n-to-statk>n or
person-to-person. Calls billed to another number will
not be accepted from coin telep)hones unless ttie opera-
tor can validate acceptance of billing from the third
number.

Coin Calls

From coin phones, see instructton card on or near the
phone, or dial "OPERATOR. "

Wide Area Telecommunications Service
(Inward Wats)

Statk>n-to-statk>n tong distance caUs may be made
without charge to you. to those customers who have a
wkje area telecommunicatkms sennce. Dial "1" plus
Area Code "800"" plus the special number of customers
having this servk^e.

Mobile Calls— Air-Land-Marine

You can make kx»l and kxig distance cans to autonx)-
biles, trucks, aircraft, boats and ships. Ask the 'OPER-
ATOR " for the Mobile. Marine, or High Seas Operator.

Overseas CaHs

You can call practteally every telephone in the work)
from your telephone. TeH the operator you wish to place
an overseas call and give the name of the country you
are calUrtg.

Time and Charges

Customers, when pladng caUs. may request from the
•OPERATOR" the amount of time charaed to the caH
and the cost associated wvith the caH. Tnls servk:e re-
quires "OPERATOR" assistance and the can may be
either stattorvto-statton or person-to-person.



TELEPHONE TIPS TO SAVE YOU MONEY, TIME AND WORRY



DIAL IT YOURSELF

You can save money by dialing all your calls direct
without involving an operator, vyfe offer tower rates on
direct dialed calls to anywhere in the United States.
Alaska. Hawaii. Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

CALL STATION-TO-STATION

Whenever you are reasonably sure the person you want
to reach will be there, or if you'll talk with anyone who
answers, call station-to-station. Calling person-to-per-
son can cost more than twk» as much as a station-to-
station call.

AVOID INVOLVING AN OPERATOR

istot only person-to-person, but collect, calling card,
most coin phones, requests for time and charges and
caUs charged to another number all require the servtoes
of an operator. This means we have to charge more for
these types of cans.

EMERGENCY NUMBERS

You"ll find a place for listing emergency numbers for
Poltoe, Fire. Ambulance and others on the inside front
cover of this directory. Fill them in for fast reference. If
however, the number isn't handy in an emergency, dial
"0 " (Operator) for assistance.



SCHEDULE YOUR CALLS

If you call someone frequently, try to arrange a spedfic
time when he or she will be there to take your caH. That
way you can always call statton-to-station and save
money.

DONT PAY FOR WRONG NUMBERS

If you reach a wrong number we don't want you to pay
for it. Let tt>e operator know right away so that you
won't be charged for it. If you call from a coin phone,
we'll mail you a refund. One way to avokl wrong num-
bers is to keep the area code and number before you
as you dial.

LET IT RING

When you make a call, give your party time to answer —
about 10 rings — before you hang up. This couto save
you having to make a second call later.

OTHER INFORMATION

Take time and took through the front pages of this
directory. You will find other helpful informatton. If you
have any other questions, just call your Servtoe
Representative. We're there to nelp.

Emergency
Preparedness




Tips for

TORNADO SAFETY

SKYWARN

Tornadoes are spawned by teyere thunder-
storms, and are only one of the thunder-
storm's hazards.

Lightning is the worst killer. Stay indoors
and away from electrical appliances while
the storm is overhead. If lightning catches
you outside, keep yourself lower than and
a safe distance from the nearest high, con-
ductive object.

Thunderstorm rains may cause flash floods.
Be careful where you take shelter.

When a tornado approaches, your immediate
action can save your life!

■ In homes, open some windows (but stay
away from them); take shelter in the
basement or under heavy furniture in the
center area of the house.

■ in schools, move quickly (following ad-
vance plans) to shelter areas or to an
interior hallway on the lowest floor.

■ In office buildings, go to an interior hall-
way on the lowest floor or to a designated
shelter area.

■ in factories, move quickly (following ad-
vance plans) to shelter areas. Post a
look-out, if this can be done safely.

■ in shopping centers, go to a designated
shelter area (not to your parked car).

■ Mobile homes are particularly vulnerable
to overturning during strong winds and
should be evacuated when strong winds
are forecast. Damage can be minimized
by securing trailers with cables anchored
in concrete footing. If there is no shelter
nearby, leave the trailer park for low, pro-
tected ground I

■ in open country, move away from the
tornado's path at a right angle. If there
is no time, lie flat in the nearest depres-
sion with your hands shielding your head.
Be alert for flash floods.

DURING A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM OR
TORNADO EMERGENCY LISTEN FOR
RADIO AND TELEVISION BROADCASTS
OF LATEST NATIONAL WEATHER SERV-
ICE BULLETINS.

TORNADO WATCH:

tornadoes may develop.

TORNADO WARNING:

tornado detected; take shelter.



SURVIVAL
in a HURRICANE



Enter the June-November season prepared.
Inventory boards, tools, batteries, nonper-
ishable foods, and other emergency equip-
ment.

A hurricane causes sea level to rise above
normal tidal heights, with giant wind-driven
waves and strong, unpredictable currents.
These are the storm's worst killer.

■ Protect your windows with boards, shut-
ters, or tape.
