News

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Hours after a newborn was found in a dumpster at a West Boca Raton apartment complex, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue officials are reminding the public that every fire station in the county is a “safe haven.”

From PBCFR:

All Palm Beach County Fire Rescue staffed stations are “Save Haven” for newborn locations.  A newborn child, from birth to 7 days old, can be turned over anonymously to fire rescue personnel at any of our Palm Beach County Fire Rescue stations.  Fire Rescue will transport the child to the nearest hospital for medical care.  Since the program’s inception in 2000, 18 newborns have been turned over in Palm Beach County.
