Indiana lawmakers have approved new options for Hoosier parents seeking to anonymously surrender a newborn baby because they are unable or unwilling to care for it.
House Bill 1230 would allow baby boxes to be located at an ambulance hub or emergency medical services station that’s staffed 24 hours a day.
Reuniting Red the dog and pet owner Lori Arredondo ranked among the highlights of East Chicago fire Capt. John Bodnar II's 16-year career, Bodnar said.
The Lake Ridge fire chief said a bullet landed in an area firefighters typically gather at in the station. Nobody was injured in either case.
Town Manager Tom DeGiulio told The Times the town is hoping the project will be substantially complete by mid-December.
There have been about 11 to 12 people working per shift, and the department has had two of its four fire stations unmanned or with limited staffing at times because of a manpower shortage.
Work on the town's new fire station is expected to wrap up before the new year.
Town officials selected the 73rd Avenue firehouse as the ideal spot for a baby box because it’s Merrillville’s only fire station that’s staffed 24 hours each day.
The fire station will be replaced by the popular restaurant chain — known for its Spicy Chicken Sandwich — along a heavily developed stretch of Ind. 2 on the city’s east side.
