WANTAGH, NY (WCBS 880) - A simple yellow dot could save your life if a new program in Nassau County is successful.

“It makes a great difference. It makes great difference, life saving difference,” said Wantagh fire commissioner Craig Craft.

Craft and Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano announced the Yellow Dot program on Wednesday.

It’s a simple yellow sticker on the back of an automobile’s rear window that would alert emergency workers responding to an accident of vital information in the glove compartment that can assist them in treating victims during critical minutes.

“If life saving efforts are going to occur, that’s when they are going to occur,” said Craft.
