The La Vergne Police Department told WGNS they are proud to be an enrollment site for the Tennessee Yellow DOT Program. The Tennessee Yellow DOT program is designed to provide first responders with an individual's medical information in the event of an emergency on Tennessee's roadways. The information can mean the difference between life and death in the "Golden Hour" immediately following a serious incident. Participants in the program will receive a Yellow DOT decal, a Yellow DOT folder, and a medical information sheet.

The participant will complete the medical information sheet, which consists of their emergency contact information, medical information, recent surgeries, hospital preferences, current medications, and insurance and physician information. A personalized photo will be taken and placed on the sheet. This information will be the sole responsibility of the participant and should remain in the glove compartment inside the yellow folder provided.

The Yellow DOT decal should be placed on the driver's side rear window of the vehicle.

The information in the Yellow DOT folder is not kept by any agency or person and will only be accessed by first responders in case of a roadway incident where emergency medical attention is needed.
