Utah's Yellow Dot Program

Citizens and First Responders Working Together to Save Lives

 

 

Welcome to Yellow Dot

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The value of a life is immeasurable. I believe this program will save lives."

 

-Jill Stevens, ER Nurse and former Miss Utah

Have you thought about what the immediate aftermath of a serious crash might be? Would you be conscious? Able to speak? Able to tell first responders what medications you're taking, any special medical considerations and who to contact?

 

These considerations and the importance of administering the most effective care as quickly as possible to crash victims led to the creation of the Yellow Dot Program.

 

It is designed to communicate critical information to first responders when crash victims might not be able to speak for themselves.

 

Utah started its Yellow Dot Program in January 2012.

 

Yellow Dot can be used in conjunction with the Vial of Life program. For details contact Rhonda Parker at 801-366-6040.
