‘Yellow Dot Program’ Coming to Dunwoody, Georgia
DUNWOODY, GA. – August 6, 2018 (fox5atlanta.com) The “Yellow Dot Program” is coming to Dunwoody, Georgia, according to an online news report from fox5atlanta.com. The program is designed to alert emergency responders to important medical information about victims.*
The Yellow Dot Program is free to participants and helps emergency responders provide vital care to patients with certain medical conditions. Participants receive round yellow decals with a peach on them. The decals are to be placed on people’s vehicle windows or at the entrances to their homes. When emergency responders see the Yellow Dots, they know life-saving information can be found inside the victim’s glove compartment or inside the freezer of the home.
The first hour after a crash or medical emergency is critical and often referred to as the “golden hour.” Emergency workers need all important information that will help them render life-saving care to victims, but victims and witnesses are not always able to provide that information. The Yellow Dot Program facilitates the flow of this information effectively and efficiently. The program has already been implemented in a few cities in Georgia, including in Augusta last month.
Yellow Dot kits will be available at several locations in Dunwoody, including the Dunwoody Police Department (4800 Ashford Dunwoody Road), the Dunwoody Library (5339 Chamblee Dunwoody Road), The Phoenix at Dunwoody (4484 N. Shallowford Road), the Alzheimer’s Association (41 Perimeter Center East, Ste. 550), and the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (5342 Tilly Mill Road).
