February 15, 2012

Law enforcement and fire officials will introduce the Yellow Dot program in Alaska on Tuesday.

Alaska State Troopers Colonel Keith Mallard, Anchorage Fire Chief Mark Hall and Anchorage Police Chief Mark Mew will discuss the program during a late morning news conference in Anchorage.

The program is designed to alert first responders and officers that someone in the vehicle has a medical condition. They signify this by placing a three inch yellow dot sticker on the rear window, on the driver’s side.

A medical information card has more information about the person’s condition.

According to the Anchorage Police Department, Alaska will become the 23rd state to use the program.
