[ARCHIVED] Illinois Yellow Dot Program Could Help Save Your Life

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) recently introduced a new program, the Illinois Yellow Dot Program, that may benefit those involved in a traffic accident. The program helps to provide first responders on an accident scene with important information about the vehicle's driver and passengers.

In the moments following an accident, seconds count. The best chance for survival following a traumatic injury, occurs when those treated are seen and treated within an hour. People who wish to participate must simply fill out a medical card that asks for basic information such as a photo, medical conditions, allergies, current medications, emergency contacts, etc. The completed medical card is then kept in the vehicle's glove box, and a yellow dot sticker is placed on the back window to notify the first responder to look for the medical card.

Those interested in obtaining a medical card and yellow dot sticker should contact the DuPage County Health Department, located at 111 N. County Farm Road in Wheaton, or call (630) 682-7400. Additional information on the Yellow Dot Program can be found by following the link below.
