Eldred Township supervisor/secretary Sharon Solt introduced information about the Pennsylvania Yellow Dot Program at the March 6 supervisors' meeting.
The PA Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the "golden hour" of emergency care following a traffic accident when a victim might not be able to communicate. By placing a yellow dot in the rear window of your vehicle, it alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure that you receive the critical attention you need.
The personal information form includes your name, contact information, emergency contact information, medical history and medications, allergies, and the participant's doctors' contact information. A photo, showing only the participant's head and shoulders, is taped to the front of the completed information sheet. The completed information sheet, with the picture, is placed in the Yellow Dot folder, which you place in your glove compartment.
The Pennsylvania Yellow Dot Program forms are available at the Eldred municipal office during hours.
