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.
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.
