BATH TWP.: The implementation of the Yellow Dot program is underway, according to Bath Trustee Jim Nelson. Packets are now available in the township offices at 3864 W. Bath Road.
This program is designed to increase awareness of medical information for emergency personnel in the event of a vehicle accident. Bath is the first community in Ohio to implement the Yellow Dot program, according to Nelson.
Participants place a yellow dot on the vehicle’s rear left window or on the gas tank of a motorcycle. That dot alerts emergency response personnel to check the vehicle’s glove compartment for important medical information regarding the vehicle’s driver. A yellow envelope in the glove compartment contains medical information—conditions or illnesses, medications taken, information about hospital and/or doctors and emergency contact information—about the owner or occupant of the vehicle.
