The Yellow Dot Program assists in lifesaving measures involving victims of automobile accident. A Yellow Dot in the rear window of a vehicle will alert First Responders arriving at an auto accident that vital information is contained in the glove compartment of the vehicle. This information can assist medical and emergency personnel during the first critical minutes, “The Golden Hour,” after a crash. The Yellow Dot Program is a cooperative effort involving the Nassau County Police Department, the Emergency Ambulance Bureau and local fire departments. This program is presented as a compliment to the Nassau County Vial of Life Project, which similarly assists during emergencies at the home.
County Executive Mangano stated, “Nassau County offers several free programs to help in time of emergency. From the Yellow Dot Program to the Vial of Life to the W.H.A.L.E. Program, Nassau County is dedicated to protecting the lives of all those who helped build our communities.”
