SOUTH PASADENA FIRE STATION
SOUTH PASADENA – Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced that a newborn child was surrendered at South Pasadena’s Fire Station #81 – the sixth Safe Surrender in Los Angeles County in 2008.
The male infant was safely surrendered on August 14, 2008 and will be placed with an approved family by the Department of Children and Family Services.
“This is another example of a life saved rather than abandoned,” said Supervisor Antonovich.
To reduce the incidence of abandoned babies in Los Angeles County, the Safe Surrender Program encourages the surrender of newborn babies to designated sites throughout the County. The program was initiated by Supervisor Knabe and approved unanimously by the Board of Supervisors in 2001.
To search for the designated Los Angeles County Safe Surrender sites, call 877-BABY SAFE (877-222-9723) or visit babysafela.org.
