Yellow Dot Program

Yes, I work for the agency that runs this program and yes, I produced this video…but I’m writing this post with my PR hat off, because I really think it’s a worthwhile program and one that is worth sharing here.

You pick up a free yellow dot sticker and put it on the back window of your car. You fill out a card with your medical information. That’s it.

Why do this? If you are in a crash and have any medical conditions or special needs or restrictions, paramedics will know by seeing that yellow dot to look for the card in your glove compartment to make sure they get you what you need – and equally important, that they don’t get you what you don’t need. The minutes or even seconds saved by having that information handy could potentially save lives.

Illinois Yellow Dot Program

Here is a look at the Illinois Department of Transportation’s new Yellow Dot Program.

This traffic safety initiative from IDOT provides first responders with critical information to improve emergency care for persons involved in vehicle crashes.

This could help save your life someday. I hope you’ll take 90 seconds to watch the video and learn more about the program.
