The Yellow Dot Program
The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with the New York State Sheriffs’ Association, are pleased to offer the Yellow Dot program to Suffolk County residents free-of-charge. The Yellow Dot program is designed to help first responders provide life-saving medical attention during that first “golden hour” after a crash or other emergency.
A Yellow Dot decal on the driver’s side rear window of your vehicle will alert first responders that vital medical information is stored in the glove compartment. How Yellow Dot Works: Each Yellow Dot Kit contains a personal information card and a Yellow Dot decal.
Complete both sides of the personal information card as fully as possible, in pencil. Attach a recent photo of yourself and place it in a visible location in your car’s glove compartment. Complete one card for each person who regularly occupies the vehicle. See below to request additional medical information forms. Place the yellow Dot decal on the rear driver’s side window to alert first responders to look in the glove compartment for your medical information. Update the card annually yourself or bring it to your annual medical check-up. If you sell your car, remove the Yellow Dot sticker.
To request a Yellow Dot kit, call the Sheriff’s Office at 631.852.2663.
