Baby Box Installed at Westfield (IN) Fire Station

The country’s 51st Safe Haven Baby Box has been installed at a fire station in Westfield, reports 93.1FM WIBC.

Nine babies have been dropped off since the Baby Box initiative started in 2016. In 2020, five babies have been dropped off.

Indiana’s Safe Haven Law allows parents to anonymously surrender their healthy newborn without fear of criminal prosecution at any fire station, police station, or hospital as long as the child appears to be 30 days or less and unharmed.
