Tennessee Department of Transportation launches Yellow DOT Program

CHATTANOOGA — The Tennessee Department of Transportation has launched the Tennessee Yellow Dot Program, designed to help first responders to auto accidents gather medical information on individuals in minutes.

The Yellow DOT website describes what is called by emergency medics as the "Golden Hour" when emergency efforts can make a huge difference in saving lives.

In that first hour after a serious injury, immediate medical care can dramatically increase a patient's chances for survival.
