Fort Lauderdale, FL utilizes an area code overlay in which area codes 754 and 954 serve the same geographic area. The area code overlay was established in 2001 at which time area code 754 was created as an overlay of area code 954. Area code 954 was originally established in 1995. 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 Fort Lauderdale, FL area codes 754 and 954 serve all of Broward County including the larger cities and communities of Cooper City, Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Dania Beach, Davie, Deerfield Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale, Hollywood, Lauderdale Lakes, Lauderhill, Margate, Miramar, North Lauderdale, Oakland Park, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Pompano Beach, Sunrise, Tamarac and Weston in addition to many smaller communities within the service area.
