The Raleigh Fire Department, in a collaborative effort with Family and Children Services, provides fire stations as Safe Place Sites.
Safe Place Sites are locations where young adults go when they are experiencing some type of emergency crisis. Each fire station designated as a Safe Place Site has trained fire fighters on-site to assist individuals who may be in a crisis situation. Fire stations that are designated Safe Place Sites display a logo sign on the exterior front entrance.
When young adults visit the local fire station seeking assistance, fire fighters will attempt to comfort them while contacting a Safe Place volunteer. The Safe Place volunteer will respond to the fire station within minutes of the request.
