Tragic events in Annapolis

As newspaper people, we all feared that the tragic events in Annapolis could’ve happened to us. We’ve all dealt with people upset about our work – ranging from reporting on a DUI to a parent unhappy about the amount of sports coverage their son or daughter got. It’s part of being in the newspaper business.

But now in these times of ugly rhetoric and social media rants, we need to understand every threat should be taken seriously. We reviewed our facility procedures here at the IPA and are going to make changes to building security.

There has been considerable discussion among the newspaper association managers today about providing active shooter training and assistance in building security issues for our members. For starters, provide your police and fire departments a floorplan of your facility, as that could prove to be invaluable. It’s sad but necessary, and we’ll keep you posted.

We lost more than just five employees at a newspaper; we lost individuals that were passionate about their craft and their community – after all, that’s what we all are. Remember their families, friends and co-workers during this difficult time.

So, keep “putting out a damn newspaper,” because that’s what the Capital Gazette did this morning and that’s what we’ll keep doing no matter what the obstacle.

 

Stand with the Capital Gazette by running these ads. Available in quarter, half and full page.
