Carbon County Sheriff’s Office Press Release
The Carbon County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce we are participating in the Utah Yellow Dot Program. We are going to present this program at the Carbon County Senior Citizens Center on Wednesday, June 11 at noon. This program is designed to provide first responders with vital medical and other information when responding to a motor vehicle crash. Basic information on the crash victim, such as known medical conditions and/or current medications, can be the tipping point towards a positive outcome. This program is also in many other states and will provide benefits for travelers too.
The Yellow Dot Program simple design includes:
Participating motorists complete a bright yellow informational document, attach an identification photograph and keep it in their vehicle glove box.
A designated Yellow Dot sticker is then placed in the rear window of the vehicle to allow emergency responders to quickly identify a participating vehicle.
Emergency responders can then review the Yellow Dot Form, identify the crash victim using the attached photograph and can often begin treatment immediately with knowledge of existing medical conditions and medications.
In cases of unfortunate outcome, important contact information is on the card.
The Yellow Dot Form can also be sent with the patient when transported to the hospital.
We will be providing free Yellow Dot Program packets at the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office.
