Yellow Dot program to help seniors in accidents

The Tennessee Yellow DOT Program is designed to provide first responders with an individual’s medical information in the event of an emergency on the road. The information can mean the difference between life and death in the “golden hour” immediately following a serious incident.

As part of a focus on community outreach and injury prevention for seniors (55+), the Traumatic Brain Injury Service at Regional One Health is offering Tennessee Yellow DOT in this community. A Yellow DOT session will be held at Regional One Health on Tuesday, July 26 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Participants in the program will receive a Yellow DOT decal for their vehicle, a Yellow DOT folder and a medical information sheet. After the session, the completed information, along with a photo of the individual, should be placed in their glove compartment and the decal should be placed on the driver’s side rear window.  This decal alerts first responders that the person’s medical information is in the vehicle.  To sign up or learn more, contact Carolyn Chambers at cchambers@regionalonehealth.org or 901-545-8487.
