Yellow Dot kits to help first responders | Events
The New York State Sheriff’s Association is partnering with over 50 sheriffs across New York State to offer Yellow Dot. The free program provides medical information to first responders.
A press conference covering the program will take place on Wednesday, June 13 at 2 p.m.
According to the New York State Sheriff’s Office, Yellow Dot kits contain a medical information card and a Yellow Dot decal. Participants complete the card, attach a recent photo, place it in the glove compartment of their car and place the Yellow Dot decal on the back of their driver’s side window.
First responders who arrive at the scene of an emergency will be alerted by the Yellow Dot decal to look for medical information.
Below are people who will be in attendance at the press conference:
- Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple
