Carlsbad Dedicates 3rd Safe Haven Baby Box

Carlsbad’s 3rd Safe Haven baby box was dedicated on Saturday. The newest addition is located on the north side of Carlsbad Fire Station 1. So far this year nationwide, 15 people have surrendered a newborn infant in a safe haven baby box. A Baby Box allows for the legal, safe, and anonymous surrender of an infant provided under the Safe Haven Law. It features three silent alarms alerting first responders to the presence of a surrendered infant. The baby will be attended to within five minutes and taken to the hospital for medical evaluation.
