White Plains Yellow Dot Program

The Yellow Dot Program assists senior citizens and others during automobile
accidents or other medical emergencies when they might not be able to
communicate for themselves.

How Does The Yellow DOT Program Work?

First Responders in White Plains are trained to look for the “Yellow Dot” on vehicles.
The “Yellow DOT” alerts responders to look for a personal information sheet in the glove box that can provide vital medical information in an emergency.

There are four items needed:

  • Passport type photo
  • Completed personal information form
  • Yellow Dot Decal
  • Yellow Dot Folder

The few easy steps needed to participate in the program:

  1. Complete a personal information form
  2. Attach a passport type photo of yourself to the form
  3. Place the Yellow Dot decal in the rear window of your car on the driver’s
    side of the vehicle.
  4. Place the completed form with your picture attached into the Yellow Dot Folder and put the Yellow Dot Folder into your vehicle glove box where White Plains Police and Fire personnel are trained to look for it.

Individuals wishing to participate in the Yellow Dot Program can sign up at the Data Management Unit office between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The Data Management Unit office is located on the main floor of the Public Safety Building at 77 So. Lexington Avenue. Participants are asked to provide a recent passport type photo when registering. Yellow Dot program information will also be available at City Hall and the Senior Center.
