The Yellow Dot Program
How does the Yellow Dot Program work?
The four items needed are a photo, a completed information form, a Yellow Dot decal, and a Yellow Dot folder.
First, a photograph is taken of the participant. The photo is later taped to the front side of the completed information sheet.
The next step is to complete the form which contains the participant's; name, address, and phone number of person to contact in case of emergency; allergies; medications and dosage taken; and names of doctors caring for the participant.
A Yellow Dot is placed in the lower left corner of the rear window of the participant's automobile on the driver's side to alert First Responders that vital medical information can be found in the glove compartment of the vehicle.
The final step is to place the completed information sheet, with picture attached, into the Yellow Dot folder and then put the folder into the glove box where first responders are trained to look when they see a Yellow Dot in the rear window. That's all there is to it!
