Briggs & Wholey attorney, Alison Wholey and Lt. Guerrette of the Knox County Sheriff's Office promote the Yellow Dot Program for Knox County Maine.
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce
that the Yellow DOT program is coming soon Knox County.
The Yellow DOT program is designed to help crash victims,
especially seniors, communicate with rescuers during the crucial "golden
hour," the first 60 minutes after a serious crash that can make the
difference between life and death for the critically injured.
It is simple but effective: Participants in the free
program receive a yellow dot to place on their rear window; it alerts emergency
services personnel to look for a corresponding yellow folder in the glove box.
That folder contains a photograph, their medical conditions, prescriptions and
other vital information.
The Yellow DOT Program will begin on April 27th
to correspond with the National Drug Take Back Initiative. Deputies and volunteers will be at each
collection site to sign people up who wish to participate.
Contact Lt. Kirk Guerrette for further questions.
