Press release submitted by Henry and Stark County Health Departments.|
With increased travel that comes with spring and summer there is a new livesaving program, Yellow Dot.
The Yellow Dot Program is an initiative designed to provide vital medical information on vehicle drivers/passengers and is free to all Illinois citizens. Vehicles are identified by a "yellow decal" on the rear
windshield. This decal alerts first responders (fire fighters, paramedics, police officers) that a yellow medical card is in the vehicles's glove compartment containing vital personal and medical information.
Information on the card includes current photo, name, emergency contact, personal physician, medical conditions, recent surgeries, allergies and current medications.
Participant packets are available at the Henry and Stark County health departments and include a tri-fold instructional pamphlet, yellow decal, yellow medical card (to be completed by the occupant) and a pencil. Additional medical cards and decals may be given for all passengers as well as multiple family vehicles.
The health department locations are the Main Office, Route 78 South, Kewanee and Colona Office, 103 First St., Colona. For information call (309) 852-0197 Main Office or (309) 792-4011 Colona Office or visit www.henrystarkhealth.com
