Burbank, CA utilizes an area code overlay in which area codes 747 and 818 serve the same geographic area. The area code overlay was established in 2009 at which time area code 747 was created as an overlay of area code 818. Area code 818 was created from a split of area code 213 and put into service on January 7, 1984. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary because two different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
In addition to Burbank, CA area codes 747 and 818 serve a significant portion of the San Fernando Valley area in California including the larger cities and communities of Agoura Hills, Burbank, Calabasas, Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, North Hollywood, Panorama City, San Fernando, Van Nuys and Woodland Hills in addition to many smaller communities within the service area.
