It is critical to know which sources to trust when you or your family are at risk during a natural disaster or another emergency. The Arizona Emergency Information Network (AzEIN) is one source of authorized information. It is the State of Arizona's offi cial platform for emergency updates, preparedness advice, hazard information and related resources. In addition to the website, you can follow AzEIN on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Blogger. Trusted sources in a disaster include also include government offi cials, established news organizations, and fi rst responders. During a response, staff from a wide variety of agencies work together to make sure messages and instructions are consistent, accurate and timely. This is especially rel- evant when the public must take protective action or be evacuated. The Arizona Department of Health Services website contains contact infor- mation for county health departments, poison control, and other key re- sponse partners. Social media can be the fastest way to spread information in an emer- gency, but be cautious. Non-offi cial sources may have good intentions, but not all the facts. It's important to identify these information sources before you're in the middle of an emergency or disaster. As National Pre- paredness Month, September is a good time to start.
