2008 marks the 25th year anniversary of Safe Place, a community collaboration where any youth can access help at fast food restaurants, convenience stores, fire stations, libraries and city buses displaying the Safe Place sign. More than 100,000 youth in crisis have sought help at a Safe Place. All Estero Fire Rescue fire stations and administration buildings serve as a shelter to youths in need. In addition, EFR acts as a Safe Haven for newborns. The Florida Safe Haven Law allows a birth parent to leave her newborn baby, of less then 3 days of age, at a fire station, hospital, or emergency services station which are all designated as Safe Havens.
