PENDLETON – Yellow Dot – the free lifesaving program designed to help first-responders provide timely medical attention – is available through the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office.

Yellow Dot, organized by the New York State Sheriffs’ Association, is geared toward senior citizens in particular.

An official Yellow Dot placed in the driver’s-side rear window of a vehicle will alert first responders that vital medical information is stored in the glove compartment.

Assemblyman Ray Walter, R-Amherst, and Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour conducted a Town Hall meeting about the program Tuesday with local residents in Pendleton United Methodist Church.

To acquire a Yellow Dot, log on to nysheriffs.org/yellowdot or contact Walter’s office at walterr@assembly.state.ny.us, or call 634-1895.
