Editorial: Make the Courthouse Safe

In an editorial, the Daily News Journal asks if the Rutherford County Judicial Building has a good plan in place for clearing the building in emergencies, in light of the confustion during a recent bomb threat there when the public address system did not work. The paper urges county officials to make the building as safe as possible. "That means coming up with an efficient evacuation plan that deals with every type of emergency, from bomb threats and fires to natural disasters." the paper says. "Each threat must be taken seriously."
