According to a release announcing the program, “a ‘yellow dot’ in the rear window of your vehicle will alert all first responders to vital information in your glove compartment.” Information should include name, emergency contact information, medical history, allergies, names of doctors and other relevant health information.
“Having this information will help to ensure that you receive the medical attention you need during that first ‘golden hour’ after a crash or other emergency involving your vehicle,” according to the release. “The ‘yellow dot’ program is a cooperative effort between local police officers, sheriff’s deputies, state troopers, emergency medical services, local fire departments and senior centers to assist Talladega County citizens in time of need, when they might not be able to help themselves.”
Participating agencies in Talladega include the sheriff’s office (north and south divisions), Talladega fire station one, Lincoln fire station one and the Sylacauga and Childersburg fire departments.
The yellow dot stickers are available free of charge to drivers of all ages.
According to the release, “there will be a representative available at the Talladega County Sheriff’s investigation office training room to assist you with signing up.”
