Madison Fire & Rescue responds to second baby surrender through Safe Haven Baby Box

MADISON – The Madison Fire and Rescue team has received a second infant surrender through the Safe Haven Baby Box located at Fire Station 1. After initial assessment and care provided by the MFR team, the infant was transferred to Madison Hospital via HEMSI for further evaluation. DHR has been notified, and agencies are currently working for the best interest of the child.

“The city of Madison recognizes the immense need for resources for mothers-in-crisis, and will continue to provide trusted emergency response to every infant placed in the Safe Haven Box,” stated Samantha Magnuson, Communications and External Affairs Director for the city of Madison.

Magnuson said the city is not publicly revealing the date the infant was left at the Safe Haven Box or gender to avoid compromising the anonymity of the child or mother. A follow up response expected within 1-2 days with official statements from Madison Mayor Paul Finley and Madison Fire Chief David Bailey.

Further resources are available through the Safe Haven Organization with free confidential counseling via their hotline 1-866-99BABY1.
