Medical Information Programs

1. YELLOW DOT PROGRAM - Emergency in the car

The Yellow Dot Program is a driver-safety initiative that provides first responders with vital information about motorists who have been involved in an MVC and are unresponsive or nonverbal.

  • Complete the information form and put it into the provided yellow envelope. Place the envelope in the glove compartment of your car.
  • Place the provided yellow decal on the driver's side, rear window. This will alert the first responders to check the glove compartment for your vital medical information.
  • Please contact Brenda Stokes at bstokes@slcfd.org to request the Yellow Dot packet, or for more information call 772-621-3333.

2. REFRIGERATOR RECORD - Emergency in the house

By keeping your medical information, emergency contact information, and a current list of your medicatoins in an obvious place, you greatly improve your chances during an emergency. Your list can be posted on the refrigerator in your kitchen.  Leave instructions for family members so they can assist if they are available. 

Put medical information in an envelope labeled *MEDICAL INFORMATION*. Secure the envelope to your refrigerator door. You may want to include a picture of yourself. Be sure to keep it at eye level, so that it is easily visible to first responders. Remember to print legibly and update the information as it changes. 

  • Complete the form and place 2 copies in an envelope labeled *MEDICAL INFORMATION*. Secure the envelope to your refrigerator door. You may want to include a picture of yourself.
  • Be sure to keep it at eye level so that it is easily visible to first responders.
  • Label one of the copies for first responders to take. This will be useful in transport and at the hospital. 
  • A PDF is provided below for you to print and fill in the information.
