Two Programs - One Goal: To Save Lives

HARRISBURG - PennDOT has recently launched two new, free safety programs designed to save lives: the Emergency Contact Information and Yellow Dot Programs.

Governor Tom Corbett recently announced both programs at a press conference where he stated: "When someone is in a crash or they find themselves in an emergency situation, it’s critical that emergency responders quickly find out as much as they can about the victim.” That is exactly what these programs are designed to do.

Both potentially life-saving programs are very easy to use:

Yellow DotYellow Dot

 
Participants in the Yellow Dot program fill out the program form with their emergency contact, medical contact and medical information, insert it in the program’s folder and then place it in their vehicle’s glove compartment. Participants then place a yellow dot sticker on their vehicle’s rear window. This sticker alerts emergency responders to check a vehicle’s glove compartment for the folder, helping emergency responders provide specific care to participants after a crash.

Emergency Contact

The Emergency Contact Information program offers Pennsylvania driver’s license and PennDOT-issued ID holders the opportunity to log into a secure database and list two emergency Safety Stickercontacts. Customers can update the information as needed, but only law enforcement officials can view their information in the system. In the event of an emergency, law enforcement can use the participant’s ID to find their emergency contact information.

People can visit www.YellowDot.pa.gov to find locations where they can pick up packets in person, or where they can submit a request via email.

Emergency Contact Information can be uploaded by visiting www.dmv.state.pa.us and clicking on the Emergency Contact Information icon.
