FORTVILLE, Ind.–A new Safe Haven Baby Box has been installed in Fortville.
The baby box is at the Vernon Township Fire Station. A dedication ceremony was held Monday.
“All she (the mother) has to do is open the door, place her child inside, shut the door and walk away,” says Monica Kelsey, Founder and CEO of Safe Haven Baby Boxes.
An alarm alerts firefighters inside the station so they can get the child out of the box and make sure it gets the care it needs. Baby boxes allow people to drop their babies off safely and anonymously.
It’s the 15th baby box installed in Indiana.
