"In trauma cases, the key is the timely diagnostic efforts of First Responders as they arrive on the scene of a vehicle accident. By quickly recognizing visual cues such as “Handicapped Tags” or “Yellow Dot Stickers” First Responders may have significant information at the ready before reaching the side of the victim.
The recognition of a Yellow Dot Program Sticker is a cognitive key that will promote the life-saving efforts of all First Responders." SOURCE: The Smart-Traveler.

Driver Safety: The Yellow Dot Program for First Responders.
The Yellow Dot program is being implemented in counties across the country. The relatively simple idea has proven to be an effective way to relay information to the emergency response teams in the event of an accident.
Participants in the Yellow Dot program place a yellow sticker on the bottom left corner of their vehicle’s rear window. This sticker lets emergency response crews know to check the vehicle’s glove compartment for important medical information regarding the vehicle’s driver.
It’s plain to see why the Yellow Dot program is beneficial in the unfortunate case of a serious, life threatening accident where the victim is unable to speak to the emergency workers. But, it can also be a vital tool in less serious accidents. Sometimes, people are in shock after an accident and they find it difficult to remember specific information. It would lower the risk of error in treatment is the emergency workers had immediate access to important medical information." SOURCE: The National Safety Commission.
In emergency medicine, the “Golden Hour” refers to a time period lasting from a few minutes to several hours following traumatic injury being sustained by a casualty, during which there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical treatment will prevent death.
It is well established that the victim's chances of survival are greatest if they receive care within a short period of time after a severe injury; however, there is no evidence to suggest that survival rates drop off after 60 minutes. Some have come to use the term to refer to the core principle of rapid intervention in trauma cases, rather than the narrow meaning of a critical one-hour time period. SOURCE Wikipedia
