HB 1607 would provide a safe haven device to allow a mother in crisis to safely, securely and anonymously surrender her newborn, up to 61 days, if she is unable to care for the child.  

The Safe Haven Baby box is installed in an exterior wall of a designated fire station or hospital. The box is equipped with an exterior door that automatically locks and initiates an alarm that notifies the hospital, law enforcement agency, or fire department where the device or container is located. Thus allowing for the medical staff member inside to immediately care for the surrendered newborn.  

The safe haven law is focused on the well being of the mother and child and offers a 24 hour hotline to help women in crisis, while also providing care for her newborn.
