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.

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