Safe Places & Safely Surrendered Baby

You, as a member of the public, should always consider Fire Stations a safe place.  Metro Fire is involved in two programs that make our Fire Stations and fire personnel a resource to you:

1

All Metro Fire Stations are Safe Places
  The objective of the Safe Places Program is to provide a temporary shelter for youth who have run away, been pushed out of their homes, sexually abused, or otherwise maltreated.
 
   

2

All Metro Fire Stations are locations that a person can abandon an infant under the Safely Surrendered Baby Law - SB 1368 / SB 116.
  The objective of the Safely Surrendered Baby Law is to provide a safe alternative for the surrender of a newborn baby.
