Let Yellow Dot speak when you can’t

Hillsborough County's Yellow Dot program gives you a voice when you are seriously injured following a traffic crash. The Yellow Dot sticker you display on your rear driver's side window alerts first responders to valuable health care information located in your glove compartment. This information helps in decisions made about your treatment and can potentially help save your life.

This information you provide will not be shared. It's a tool used to help first responders:

  • Identify who you are
  • Determine if you have a pre-existing medical condition that may inhibit you from communicating
  • Ensure that your current medications and pre-existing medical conditions are considered

It's easy to get the Dot:

  • Pick up your Yellow Dot sticker and medical information form at any Hillsborough County Fire Station
  • Place the Yellow Dot sticker on your rear window, and store your medical form and photo in your glove compartment
