The Yellow Dot Program Kicks Off in May

By Shari L. Covino

The kickoff of the Yellow Dot Program will be on Senior Day, May 21st, 10am to 2pm and will commence at the Senior Center. The Yellow Dot Program, a sub-program of TRIAD, refers to the yellow sticker in the rear left window of the car and is specific to Senior citizens. The Yellow Dot is visible from the outside and is an alert system to first responders that the vehicle driver has special medical needs. It tells first responders to look in the glove compartment for a medical identification card. The medical card contains the driverís medical and emergency information that may become life saving in the event of an emergency. Hereís how it works:

  • Medical identification cards are obtained at the Senior Center

  • The owner fills out the medical card, affixes a photo for identification, and detaches the yellow dot.

  • The owner sticks the yellow dot to the rear left window of the vehicle.

  • The owner stores the medical card in the vehicle glove compartment.

First responders will then be able to:

  • See the Yellow Dot in the rear window

  • React to the emergency

  • Look in the glove compartment for the medical card containing the emergency information
