The Dunwoody Police Department is now participating in the Yellow Dot safety program to provide first responders notice where they can obtain a resident’s medical history during an emergency.

Residents can now pick up yellow dot kits at several locations in the city. The kits include a yellow, peach-shaped decal placed on the driver side rear window of a vehicle. The yellow dot informs first responders that medical information is stored in the glove compartment, according to a press release.

Yellow dot stickers can also be placed at the entrance of a resident’s home informing first responders to look for medical information in the glove compartment or on the refrigerator.

Georgia’s Yellow Dot Program can be used by anyone is recommended for people with multiple or serious medical conditions; people with severe allergies; children with special needs; and individuals with dementia who may be prone to driving.
