On April 3, Schertz EMS began the Yellow Dot Program, which allows first responders to have a detailed medical history on patients who have a disability and/or are high acuity.

For those who fall under the qualifications, a yellow sticker will be placed on the vehicle to assist first responders in the area to obtain information quickly in the event of an emergency.

After identifying the yellow sticker, first responders are trained to locate a yellow pamphlet inside the car that details the person's medical history and other vital information.

This pamphlet will assist responders in providing the appropriate care and resources to individuals who may not be able to communicate their needs, according to city staff.

Signing up for the program is free. To schedule an appointment to receive a yellow dot sticker, contact Amy Anderson at 210-619-1430.
