The new Safe Baby Haven stickers and magnets on Glendale Fire Department vehicles in honor of National Safe Baby Haven Day. The Glendale Fire Department was the first fire department in the state to place Safe Baby Haven signs up at all fire stations and will now be the first fire department to place Safe Baby Haven stickers and magnets on fire department vehicles.

Arizona passed the Safe Haven law that identifies places where mothers can safely and anonymously surrender their babies without fear of prosecution. If the baby is unharmed, is under 72 hours old, and the mother does not intend to reclaim the baby, they can take the baby to a safe haven location like a fire station or staffed fire truck with no legal consequences.
