NY Sheriffs Yellow Dot Program

 A free Life Saving program designed to help first responders (police, fire and emergency medical services) provide life-saving medical attention during that first “golden hour” after a crash or other emergency.
New York State Sheriffs Association Yellow Dot Program
The Ulster County Sheriffs Office is a proud participant of the New York State Sheriffs Association Yellow Dot Program.  A Yellow Dot in the driver’s-side rear window of their vehicle or on/next to their front door will alert first responders that vital medical information is respectively stored in their glove compartment or in a freezer bag placed in the freezer in their residence.
How Yellow Dot Works
The Yellow Dot kit contains a personal information card and a Yellow Dot decal.
1. 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.
2. Complete one card for each person who regularly occupies the vehicle. See below to request additional medical information forms.
3. 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.
4. Update the card annually yourself or bring it to your annual medical check-up. If you sell your car, remove the Yellow Dot sticker.
