NYS Sheriffs’ Association Yellow Dot Program
Yellow Dot is a free program designed to help first responders provide life-saving medical attention after a crash or other emergency. A Yellow Dot in the driver’s-side rear window of your vehicle will alert first responders that vital medical information is stored in the glove compartment.
HOW YELLOW DOT WORKS
The Yellow Dot kit contains a personal information card and a Yellow Dot decal.
• Complete both sides of the personal information card as fully as possible, in pencil. Attach a recent photo of yourself and place it in a visible location in your car’s glove compartment.
• Complete one card for each person who regularly occupies the vehicle.
• Place the Yellow Dot decal on the rear driver’s side window to alert first responders to look in the glove compartment for your medical information.
• Update the card annually yourself or bring it to your annual medical check-up. If you sell your car, remove the Yellow Dot sticker.
USE YELLOW DOT AT HOME
A Yellow Dot kit can also be used to alert those who respond to an emergency in your home. Simply place a Yellow Dot decal on or beside your front door and place a completed card for each occupant in a clear plastic freezer bag and place in a visible location in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator.
