[ARCHIVED] Hurt on the highway?

PennDOT, along with several other state and local agencies, has launched a program designed to reduce the time it takes Emergency Medical Technicians to find out critical health information about an accident victim and for police to let that person’s emergency contacts know they’ve been hurt. The “Yellow Dot” program asks participants to place their vital information into a folder which is kept in their dashboard glove compartment. Free Yellow Dot kits are available from the Cranberry Township Police Department, the Haine School Road fire station, and the Cranberry EMS base station. Drivers stick the kit's yellow dot on their vehicle’s rear window, signaling emergency workers that essential medical information and emergency contact data is inside. Program details are available online at www.YellowDot.pa.gov.
