Yellow Dot Program
Everyone needs Yellow Dot because anyone can be in a vehicle crash or other roadside emergency and not be able to communicate when First Responders arrive. This could be an injured parent with children, or an individual driving alone in a vehicle.
As our medically fragile and senior population continue to grow in Moore County we have found this program extremely helpful in emergency situations where someone may be become confused as to where they are or how to get home. A parent or guardian of a medically fragile or non-verbal dependant may be involved in a accident and first responders can use this information to contact a family member or how to better assist everyone involved if there are individualized medical needs.
The Yellow Dot information in your glove compartment speaks for you when you cannot speak for yourself or your family. You don't need to have a medical condition to need Yellow Dot.
