Press release. Now that the month of May has ended and all the statistics have been complied, it is abundantly clear that 9-1-1 hang-up calls and misdials   continue at an alarming pace. The Raleigh-Wake Emergency Communications center has released its analysis from the last half of May that shows no improvement over numbers experienced earlier in the month. Ten-digit dialing continues to cause significant problems for the Raleigh-Wake Emergency Communications Center. In March, prior to the area code changes,  telecommunicators processed an average of 1,434 calls per day. The number climbed to 1,780 per 24 hour period in April, and to 1,820 each day in May.
