Yellow Dot program implemented in Cincinnati area

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Episcopal Retirement Homes (ERH), who owns and operates Deupree House and Marjorie P. Lee in Hyde Park, in collaboration with Cincinnati police and fire departments, has announced their sponsorship of the Yellow Dot program for the local community and ERH residents.

The Yellow Dot Program is the first of its kind in Ohio. A Yellow Dot sticker on the rear window of an accident victim's vehicle will alert first responders to vital information in the victim's glove box. This helps to ensure that the victim receives medical attention during that first 'golden hour' after a vehicle crash or emergency - similar to the Vial of Life program. To sign up for the program, come to the ERH open house:

  • When: Tuesday, October 25, 2011 from 9 a.m. until 12 Noon.
  • Location: Deupree House - 3939 Erie Avenue, Cinti, OH 45208

The Yellow Dot Program is presently in 22 counties in eight states. Alabama is the first state to make it a statewide program. If Senate Bill 204 is passed, ERH hopes the program will expand statewide.
