SPRINGFIELD - The Illinois Department of Transportation has kicked off an annual program designed to help save lives.
The "Yellow Dot" program provides first responders with vital information like allergies, medications, and pre-existing condition. The information helps EMTs provide the best possible care when they arrive at the scene of an accident.
"It can mean the difference between life and death because Yellow Dot gives first responders the information they need on the scene to treat a crash victim properly," said John Webber, the Interim Director of IDOT.
