The Yellow Dot Program
The Oneida, Herkimer and Madison County Sheriffs have launched a state Sheriff’s Association Yellow Dot program. The free program provides vital medical information to first responders by providing a kit to individuals with 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 or the freezer compartment of their refrigerators in their homes and put the Yellow Dot decal in the rear driver’s side window or beside their front door at home. First responders arriving at the scene of a medical emergency will be alerted by the decal to look for the medical information card. This service is available to all ages and kits are available at Sherrill City Hall or the Community Activity Center. They also can be received by mail by visiting www.nysheriffs.org/yellowdot.
