This program, backed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, helps first responders locate vital medical information in case of emergency.
In 2013, the state’s transportation department released The Yellow Dot Program. It aims at helping emergency crews during car accidents. Inside the kit is a yellow dot decal, a pamphlet and an emergency information sheet.
The decal is affixed in the lower left corner of the rear windshield of a vehicle, which will alert first responders to check the glove compartment for the pamphlet, which contains vital information including medical conditions, emergency contacts and preferred hospitals.
