Sign Up For the Yellow Dot Program

CFAA-YellowDotThe Yellow Dot Program is a free program designed to give first responders critical medical and emergency contact information at the scene of a motor vehicle accident. Accident victims are often unable to communicate for themselves, and having this information is crucial to the first responders’ ability to positively identify the accident victims, treat existing medical conditions, and contact the family of the victim. For more information, click on the Yellow Dot icon or go to: www.yellowdotme.org.
