Yellow Dot Program


Yellow Dot is a free program designed to help first responders provide life-saving medical attention during that first ‚Äúgolden hour‚ÄĚ 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.

8112_123043_0.pngComplete both sides of the personal information card as fully as possible, in pencil. Attach a recent photo of yourself and place the card in a visible location in your car’s glove compartment.

8112_123043_0.pngComplete one card for each person who regularly occupies the vehicle. See below to request additional medical information forms.

8112_123043_0.pngPlace 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.

8112_123043_0.pngUpdate the card annually yourself or bring it to your annual medical check-up. If you sell your car, remove the Yellow Dot sticker.
