SOUTH WINDSOR- On Thursday, Sept. 5 from 8:30 to 10 a.m., seniors are encouraged to sign up for the Yellow Dot program, get a File of Life and a “Go/Stay/Kit!” What is the Yellow Dot Program? The Yellow Dot Program is a “File of Life” for your car! Medical info, along with a photo, is kept in your glove box which is available to emergency responders. A sticker is put on the back windshield of your car which alerts staff to look in the glove box for your information. Please bring: A list of your medications, Emergency contact info and a smile...for your photo! Files of Life will be given out by the South Windsor Ambulance Corp. Files of Life are magnets on your fridge that contains medical info and emergency contact info so that it is readily available to first responders. Go/Stay/Kit: A booklet that you take with you if you are instructed to leave your home in the event of an emergency, or use the handy reference information if you are instructed to stay in your home.
