A Group Sets Up Two Dozen More “Baby Safe Havens” Across Dorchester


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Baby Safe Haven New England spokesperson Mackenzie Lee Clement will present 20 "baby safe haven" signs to the Boston Fire Department on Friday.

These bright yellow signs are hung up at hundreds of fire stations, hospitals, and police stations across the state.

The additional signage comes after an infant was found alive in a trash can near the Lower Mills district of Dorchester.

Baby Safe Haven New England noticed that there was a large gap in placement of signs in Dorchester, so the group is placing the 24 signs within a 5 mile radius of where the infant was found.

Lee Clement, of Woburn, said she wants to inform young women about safely dropping off a baby “before anything like this happens again.”

The signs urge desperate mothers to leave their newborn at a location where there are staff members present, otherwise to go to the nearest emergency room.

The sign emphasizes that there will be “no questions asked.”
