Come and get involved in this important Community Meeting! This is a time where adults in the community, who care about issues regarding drugs and alcohol, can get together for discussion. The ELANCO Coalition will be sharing survey results from people in the community about common problems, and their opinions. Together we can brainstorm some issues and effective ways that we can make this community a better place!
Pennsylvania Yellow Dot Program
Pennsylvania’s Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a yellow dot in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.
The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Health and Aging; the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and First Responders and local law enforcement.
How does it work?
Participants complete a personal information form, which includes the participant’s name, contact information, emergency contact information, medical history and medications, allergies and the participant’s doctors’ names. A photo – showing only the participant’s head and shoulders – is then taped to the front of the completed information sheet.
The yellow dot decal provided in the program kit is placed in the lower left corner of the participant’s vehicle’s rear windshield. The decal should be no higher than 3 inches from the bottom of the windshield. This decal alerts first responders that vital information can be found in the vehicle.
Place the completed information sheet, with the attached picture, into the Yellow Dot folder, and then place the folder into the vehicle’s glove box.
Brecknock Township has a supply of these Pamphlets at the township office. Feel free to stop by during our regular business hours Mon. – Fri. 9 am – 5 pm and pick up a copy.
