The Village of Bement is participating in the State of Illinois Department of Transportation’s Yellow Dot Program. Aimed at providing first responders with as much personal information as possible in case of an accident, the program includes a medical card, contact information, emergency contact information, and medical history and information. Participants also receive a yellow dot to place on the rear-facing window on the driver’s side so that first responders know to look in the glove department for more information about the patient. Bement citizens can pick up their complimentary yellow dot packet at the Village Municipal Hall or at Salon 101 on Highway 105.
