YELLOW DOT is a free program by the NYS Sheriffs' Association designed to help first responders provide life-saving medical attendtion during that first "golden hour" after a crash or emergency. A Yellow Dot in the driver's-side rear window of your vehicle will alert first responders that vital medical information is stored in the glove compartment.
