Residents may enroll in the Yellow Dot Program

Representatives of People’s Bank and the Fairfield Police Department will be at the Fairfield Senior Center, 100 Mona Terrace on Thursday, May 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to enroll people in the town’s Yellow Dot Program, which is free of charge.

The Yellow Dot is a decal placed on the senior’s left rear window of their car, which alerts emergency personnel to the presence of more information in the person’s glove compartment. Each participant will receive a folder with a yellow dot that goes in their glove compartment, which contains personal information, emergency contacts, medications, allergies, medical history, hospital preference, and name of physician(s). This information helps emergency medical personnel evaluate a situation, whether it is a car accident or sudden illness.

Fairfield residents are welcome to stop in between the hours of 10 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. to pick up their free materials and enroll in the program. The data is confidential and kept on the Police Department’s computer system. The bank does not have, nor do they keep any record of participants’ information.

“People’s Bank does fund this program as a community service, for which we are very grateful,” said Terry Giegengack, director of Human and Social Services.

The Senior Center has free handicapped parking and is a handicapped accessible building. For more information, call 203-256-3166 weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
