Yellow Dot Program
Yellow Dot is a free program designed to help first responders provide life-saving medical attention during that first “golden hour” 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 the card in a visible location in your car’s glove compartment.
Complete one card for each person who regularly occupies the vehicle. See below to request additional medical information forms.
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.
