"E" is Eastern Time Zone, "C" is Central Time Zone, "M" is Mountain Time Zone, and "P" is Pacific Time Zone. Occasionally, an area code will fall in more than one time zone. In this case, the abbreviation is a combination of the previous abbreviations. Some area codes are shown with time zones referencing Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
