Good things come to those that wait

I am very excited we are finally launching the Arizona Emergency Information Network (AzEIN) website!!

If some of you remember Arizona 2-1-1 . . . AzEIN is the new and improved version. We are focused on providing information about what hazards there are in Arizona (yes, there are hazards )and what we can do to prepare for them. We ask public information officers throughout the state to share information about ongoing emergencies . . . .so we can post that information too.

While the web is a helpful tool to relay information, the television is probably the #1 information source for many. I am concerned about the number of households that have not converted from analog to digital television . . . it is likely those folks don’t access the internet for their news.

I only have one friend that falls into the analog category, my 80 year-old friend Franny. I have confirmed she has the converter box so she can continue to watch television . . .the news or Entertainment Tonight.
