Do you have medical issues that you want emergency responders to know about if you get in a crash? Bath Township has a program for that.
The first of its kind in Ohio, the Yellow Dot program lets emergency responders know about your health and any issues you have if you're too hurt to tell them after an accident.
It starts with a folder that you can pick up at the Bath Police Department, Bath Fire Department or the administration building. Inside is a form you fill out that asks questions about your allergies, blood type, medications and medical conditions. It also asks you to list an emergency contact.
After filling it out, you place it back in the folder and put it in your glove box. Then place the yellow dot decal on your back windshield. Make sure you include a photo of yourself in case someone else drives your car and gets in an accident. That way they don't treat the wrong person.
The program is free to Bath residents and it is funded by Bath Township, said Executive Assistant Hannah Krumheuer. Trustee Jim Nelson helped see the program to its completion.
