150 of Autauga County School System’s bus drivers signed up for Yellow Dot, a free program providing potentially life-saving information to first responders in the event of a vehicle crash.
Drivers’ photographs were taken and they completed personal forms with emergency contact and medical information. A Yellow Dot decal is placed on the back, bottom-left, window of each school bus, and a packet of medical information is placed behind each driver’s seat.
Ms. Lora Weaver, Yellow Dot coordinator for the State of Alabama, thanked County Extension Coordinator Yvonne Bowens-Thomas for her work getting the Autauga County School System to embrace the program. “Because of your efforts, we may begin seeing Yellow Dots on all school buses throughout the state”, Ms. Weaver stated. Special “Thanks” to the Autauga County Commission for support of this Community Resource Development program.
