Yellow Dot Nevada
Sponsored by AAA, Yellow Dot Nevada is a life-saving program that alerts first responders at a vehicle-incident scene that an occupant may have medical issues. This information is vital in the “golden hour” following an accident or roadside medical episode. Through knowledge gained from this information, emergency workers can increase the chance of survival or lower the risk of error for an incident victim who may be incapacitated.
A yellow dot decal on the rear window of the driver’s side of the vehicle alerts first responders to check the glove compartment, where a Yellow Dot kit contains vital medical information about the driver and/or passengers.
The 2015 Nevada Legislature passed AB 176, requiring the Yellow Dot Program be available in counties with populations of more than 700,000. In Clark County, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) administers Yellow Dot in partnership with Clark County; the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, and Mesquite; and community-minded businesses and non-profit organizations. Yellow Dot launched nationally in 2002 and is now active in about two dozen states.
