Anne Arundel County Declares "Safe Stations"

County and Annapolis officials announced Thursday that area fire departments and police stations will function as resource centers for people addicted to drugs that want help and also will give free medical evaluations to those seeking treatment. These "safe stations" will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Within two hours of the announcement, a person walked in to the Brooklyn Park Volunteer Fire Department and asked for help with his addiction.
