HELPFUL HINTS

Packing
New England can get very warm. You should pack for warm weather and outdoor activities. Bring a light jacket for the occasional cool night during the Spring.

How to Make Telephone Calls in the USA
Emergencies requiring the police, the fire department or medical assistance can be reported from any telephone including cell phones.

Dial: 911. This is normally a free call from any pay telephone. That means no coins or credit cards are needed. In most parts of the USA, the emergency response center will immediately know your location without being told. US telephone numbers are typically 10 digits long and consist of a 3-digit area code, and a 7-digit number. When dialing a number outside the local area code, you must first dial a "1". The area code for New England is 413.

Example: long-distance calls – dial a “1” and the area code “413” and the number 259-5589.

Making International Calls from the USA
To place an international call, dial: 011 + country code + city code + number. Calls to Canada, Puerto Rico, and some Caribbean countries can be completed without the additional prefix or country code. They are the same as any other long distance call placed within the USA. Dial: "1" + area code + number.

Finding a Telephone Number in the USA
Directory assistance is useful in finding telephone numbers. This automated response system communicates in both English and Spanish and is accessible when using any type of telephone including cellular. You may be charged up to $1 for this service. Simply dial: 411 to request local and long-distance numbers, and 1-800-555-1212 to request a toll-free number.

The Internet now provides easy access to telephone listings throughout the USA. You can use Yahoo People Search at this web site: http://phone.people.yahoo.com or several other free telephone directories on the Internet. You will have a telephone in your apartment. This phone is set for local calls only. You will need a calling card to place a long-distance or international call.

Electrical Power
The electrical outlets in the United States run on 110V 60Hz power, which is different from many other places in the world. If you have brought any items with you that require electricity, the power cords you have may not fit into the outlets in your apartment. In this case you may need to purchase outlet adapters for your equipment. These adapters can be purchased at many retail stores in New England. Never try to force a plug into an outlet if it does not fit!
