Area drivers who want to sign up for the nationwide safety initiative known as the Yellow Dot Program may stop by to fill out a form listing their key medical and emergency-contact information to store in their vehicles’ glove compartment. They will also receive a yellow sticker to place in their cars’ rear window. In the event of an emergency, the sticker will alert first responders to check the car’s glove compartment for the information they need to provide optimal care.
Locally, Yellow Dot is a project of the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, local law enforcement, local fire departments, Northeast Mobile Health Services and other EMS services, and the Rockport law firm of Briggs & Wholey, LLC, with support from Quarry Hill and other caring organizations.
Participation in the program is free of charge and completely voluntary. Enrollees are asked to divulge only information pertinent to their care in an emergency.
