This program assists citizens in the "golden hour" of emergency care following a traffic crash when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a Yellow Dot decal in your vehicle's rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need. The program is a cooperative effort between PennDOT, the state departments of Health and Aging, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, first responders, and local law enforcement.

Allegheny County Emergency Services Special Needs Registry
What is the Special Needs Registry?
The Special Needs Registry is a way for the Department of Emergency Services to receive information about residents who have special needs that would be helpful for emergency responders to know.
How will the Special Needs Registry be used?
The information will be programmed to appear on the 9-1-1 Operator’s screen when an emergency call is made from your home. This will allow dispatchers to alert emergency responders that there may be a unique situation in your home involving a person with special needs. It will also be used for the purpose of emergency planning.
Who is eligible for the Special Needs Registry?
Any Allegheny County resident who may require additional assistance due to special needs during a police, fire or medical emergency may submit information to the registry. In the event that the person with special needs is unable to submit the information on their own, a person who is authorized to act on their behalf may do so (guardian, power of attorney, etc.).
If you would like more information, or would like to sign up for, the Allegheny County Special Needs Registry, please use the following web address:
