The Yellow Dot program is designed to assist Broward County residents and first responders in the event of an automobile crash or other medical emergency involving the participant’s vehicle. The program can help save lives by improving communication at a time when accident victims may be unable to communicate for themselves.
“What happens in the critical moments after an accident may mean the difference between life and death. The Yellow Dot program provides instant medical information to first responders on the scene of an accident. This vital information will help emergency workers make the best treatment decisions, especially when someone is unconscious and unable to speak for themselves,” said Broward Mayor Marty Kiar, who brought the program to Broward County.
A Yellow Dot decal displayed on a car’s rear windshield or in a clearly visible location on a motorcycle alerts emergency responders to look for the Yellow Dot pamphlet in the vehicle’s glove compartment. The information you provide on the pamphlet will help emergency responders decide how to treat you if you are unable to communicate effectively following an accident.
Enrollment in the program is completely voluntary, quick and easy!
