TDOT Launches Yellow DOT Program
The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) today launched the Yellow DOT Program, designed to assist first responders identify vital medical information when senior drivers are in an accident. Yellow stickers are placed by the owner in the bottom left side of the rear window and yellow envelopes containing a photo, medical history and prescription drug information are kept in the glove compartments.
Emergency personnel have a better opportunity to make the most of the “golden hour” ; the first hour after an injury or medical emergency. Medical treatment can dramatically increase a patient’s chances for survival during that time.
When a TDOT-Yellow Dot sticker is seen on a vehicle, then first responders will check the glove compartment for the Yellow Dot medical information. It can also help in efforts to identify victims and personalize their treatment. Yellow Dot can also improve communication between field personnel and hospital emergency staff.
The program can be beneficial for anyone with medical issues. There is no cost associated with signing up for the program. http://www.tdot.state.tn.us/yellowdot/.
