Idaho Yellow Dot Program

The Idaho Yellow Dot program is to assist emergency medical responders and law enforcement in reporting critical medical information in the event of a motor vehicle accident when a citizen is unable to communicate for themselves. By participating in this program, it can mean the difference between life and death in the "Golden Hour" after a serious injury or medical emergency.

How Yellow Dot Works...

Step 1 - Request a Yellow Dot kit. Each kit contains a Yellow Dot medical form, a Yellow Dot decal, and a Yellow Dot envelope.

Step 2 - Have a photo taken. Place the photograph on the medical form. It should be a clear, recent photo of the participant.

Step 3 - Fill out a form for each participant who regularly rides in the vehicle and place in the yellow envelope.

Step 4 - Place the Yellow Dot decal on the bottom left side of the rear-facing window. This will alert first responders to look in the glove compartment for your medical form.

Step 5 - Place the Yellow Dot envelope in your glove compartment. First responders will look there when they see the decal on your car window.

The program is a free service offered to all Idaho citizens.

To request your Yellow Dot kit, please email YellowDot@dhw.idaho.gov and provide your first and last name, mailing address, and the number of kits you would like. Your kit(s) will be mailed to you in a couple of weeks.
