Chenango County Offers Yellow Dot Program
The Chenango County sheriff’s office and over 30 other sheriffs across the state are partnering to offer the yellow dot program, a free program designed to help first responders provide lifesaving medical attention during the first critical hour after a crash or other emergency.
The yellow dot kit contains a medical information card for the glove compartment and a yellow dot decal to place on the rear window on the driver’s side.
At home, put the yellow dot near your front door and place the medical information card in the freezer of your refrigerator.
When responders arrive at an accident scene or home emergency, they will see the yellow dot, retrieve the medical card and send it with the patient to the hospital.
Yellow dot kits are free and available online at nysheriffs.Org /yellowdot.
