This Public Safety Program is simple in concept and simple in execution:
PLACE A HIGHLY VISIBLE REFLECTIVE SYMBOL ON YOUR CAR OR YOUR RESIDENCE DOOR (THE YELLOW DOT PROGRAM STICKER) THAT CAN BE RECOGNIZED AS A "MEDICAL NEEDS ALERT" TO TRAINED RESCUERS!
PLACE A YELLOW ENVELOPE OR CONTAINER IN THE GLOVE BOX OF YOUR CAR OR ATTACH TO YOUR HOME REFRIGERATOR (IN A VISIBLE LOCATION) THE KEY MEDICAL INFORMATION SUCH AS: ALLERGIES; MEDICATIONS & PRESCRIPTION DRUGS: PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS; A PHOTO AND YOUR CONTACT NUMBERS. ALL CRITICAL INFORMATION FOR USE AT THE SCENE BY THE FIRST RESPONDERS.
IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH OR HOME EMERGENCY, #1 AND #2 COMBINED ENHANCE YOUR SURVIVAL CHANCES.
Most Yellow Dot Programs are supported at the local level by First Responders such as Fire and Rescue, Traffic Enforcement, the Sheriff's Department and other Public Safety Personnel because it speeds recognition of S.A.M.P.L.E. HISTORY, a acronym for obtaining accurate medical history (see: EMT Paramedic Training Standard, NHTSA). At this time 22 States have official active programs being deployed at some level.
Our support is for a standardized National Yellow Dot Program (for vehicles) as originally defined in U.S. Senate Act (SA 1813) as filed by then Senator Joseph Manchin, (D - WVA). The Bill has since been withdrawn however, we hope for it to be reintroduced in 2015.
