The Idaho Yellow Dot program assists emergency medical responders and law enforcement in reporting critical medical information in the event of a motor vehicle accident when a person 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 free and offered to all Idaho residents.
