Emergency Medical Information Program

Yellow Dot Program: Expanding on a program in the United States, the Yellow Dot Program is a method of informing emergency services and first responders of pertinent medical and contact information for those participating in the program. Should a person be incapacitated, medical information can be found attached to the back of the resident’s front door or in close proximity to it. Through an arrangement with ECU911, the program is being introduced here in Cuenca.

A participant would place a large yellow dot in the upper right corner on the outside of his or her front door, which will indicate to the first responder to look for the medical history document immediately inside. (As an example, a Command Hook can be attached to the back of the front door, and the medical info/contact sheet could be inserted in a plastic sleeve to be hung from the hook.) Each resident of the home would have his or her own medical sheet.

A downloadable version of the medical information sheet and yellow dot is available through the link:
