What is Safe Haven? Are there Safe Haven Sites in Thornton?

The Safe Haven laws allow a parent to hand over an infant, up to 72 hours old, to an employee at any Fire Station or Hospital with absolutely no questions asked. The parent will not be prosecuted for abandonment as long as the baby is unharmed. All Thornton Fire Department Stations are considered Safe Haven Sites for Newborns. For more information on the Colorado Safe Haven Law and the Colorado Safe Haven for Newborns organization visit www.coloradosafehaven.org.
