Yellow Dot Program

The Recompense Foundation is supporting this on Chebeague with the Library. We have the endorsement of the town police officer and are seeking the endorsement of the Selectmen, the Fire Department, the Rescue, and the Council.

The free YDP involves a decal on vehicles' rear windows which, after an accident, alerts first responders to a yellow vinyl packet in the glove compartment containing contact information for the driver's doctor and family members, plus medications and medical conditions. Appropriate, prompt medical attention can save lives.

This program kicked off in Maine this month under the leadership of the Gorham Police Department and support of all of Cumberland County's Police Departments.
