Yellow dot can save lives

Posted on Friday, February 9, 2018 at 11:19 am

Fayetteville-Lincoln County Senior Citizens Center is the official site for the Yellow Dot program in Lincoln County.

In the “golden hour” after a serious auto accident, a yellow dot could save your life. Tennessee is encouraging all motorists to participate in the state’s Yellow Dot program which provides identification and critical health information to first responders at the scene of a crash.

Drivers simply attach a free, state-issued sticker to their car’s back window and place a yellow envelope in the glove compartment. Papers inside include information on allergies, medications, pre-existing conditions, a photo and contact numbers, all of which could make a life or death difference.

To pick up your free yellow dot envelope, stop by the Fayetteville-Lincoln County Senior Center, located at 908 West Washington Street, Fayetteville. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
