New County Program May Help Save Lives after an Accident
Get Your Yellow Dot Decal in Locations throughout the City of Hollywood
HOLLYWOOD - Broward County has launched a new program that may help save lives in the critical moments after a car accident. The Yellow Dot Motorist Medical Information Program (Yellow Dot Program) is designed to assist Broward County residents and first responders in the event of a medical emergency where the participant's vehicle is involved.
"This program will save lives by providing vital information to first responders when accident victims may be unable to communicate for themselves. Enrollment in this program is voluntary, quick and easy," said Broward County Mayor Martin Kiar.
A Yellow Dot decal displayed on the rear windshield, or in a clearly visible location on a motorcycle alerts emergency responders to look for the Yellow Dot pamphlet in the vehicle's glove compartment. Pamphlet information, provided by participants, is designed to help emergency responders decide how to treat a person who may be unconscious following an accident or medical emergency.
Yellow Dot decals and pamphlets are available at the City of Hollywood Fire Rescue Administration Office at Station 74 at 2741 Stirling Road in Hollywood. Pamphlets and decals are also available at the Hollywood Police Department Headquarters, 3250 Hollywood Boulevard and Community Centers throughout the City. For more information on the Yellow Dot Program or to request a decal and pamphlet call 954.831.4000, visit www.broward.org/yellowdot or email BCYellowDot@broward.org.
