Yellow Dot Program in Connecticut
The National TRIAD initiative affixes a yellow dot in the car’s rear window to alert emergency response personnel to senior drivers’ and passengers’ medical information stored in the vehicle.
Register at Stonington Human Services.  Please bring all current medical information when registering; photos will be taken on site.  Information cards are also utilized to alert emergency personnel of the injured senior’s family members whose care may be dependent upon the senior, such as a homebound spouse.
Call (860) 535-5015 for an appointment.
Sponsored by Stonington Police Department and Stonington TRIAD.
