The Hillsboro Lions Club is providing free Yellow Dot kits at its pancake feed from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 26.
The program is designed to provide first responders with information critical to treatment in the event someone is incoherent or unresponsive following an automobile accident or other medical emergency.
The National Yellow Dot program can save lives with participants displaying the yellow dot sticker on their vehicle’s rear window. The sticker will direct first responders to look for the yellow envelope in the glove box.
The information sheet will minimize adverse drug reactions which cause people to die every year.
In addition to kits being available at the pancake feed, the yellow dot kits can also be picked up on a table in the lobby of the Hillsboro City Building, 118 E. Grand.
