ROME, N.Y. – With snow squalls and icy roads creating potentially hazardous driving conditions this season, the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is inviting seniors to enroll in a program that may save their lives in an emergency.
Deputies visited the South Rome Senior Center Friday to talk about enrollment in the Yellow Dot Program.
The free Yellow Dot kit provides a stick and medical information card. The sticker should be placed on the rear driver’s side window of a car, and the card in the glove box. This way, in the case of an accident, first responders know to check the glove box for important medical information. Stickers can also be placed on a window in a home, so emergency responders will know to look for the medical card in the freezer.
The program is open to all ages.
For more information on obtaining a kit, call the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office at 315-736-8364.
