The Safe Sleep Campaign

safesleep2.jpgSince January 2014, 33 alleged reports of babies dying due to unsafe sleep have been called in to the Florida Abuse Hotline.

These tragedies could have been prevented, and now Florida government agencies, state officials, non-profit organizations and first responders are coming together to launch The Safe Sleep Campaign. The campaign includes public outreach as well as free online training and materials for Florida's first responders in an effort to prevent unsafe sleep during routine calls and interactions with the public.

The campaign also encourages the public to donate new pack n plays (portable cribs) to designated locations, which will be distributed to needy families by local coalitions.
