and/or sign up for alerts please visit the Blair County 911 Center's webpage regarding the alert system

* The Pennsylvania Yellow Dot program was created to assist citizens in the "golden hour" of emergency
care following a traffic crash when they may not be able to communicate themselves by placing a
yellow dot on the rear of your vehicle. This alerts first responders to check your glove box for vital
information. Participants complete a personal information form which includes participant's name,
contact information, medical history and medications, allergies, and participant's doctor information.
