PennDOT's Yellow Dot Program

Pamphlets are available at: White Oak Police Department, 2280 Lincoln Way, White Oak, PA.


Pennsylvania's Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the "golden hour" of emergency care following a traffic accident when they may not be able to communicate their needs themselves. Placing a yellow dot in your vehicles rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure you receive the medical attention you need.

The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Health and Aging, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission and First Responders and local law enforcement.

How does it work?
Participants complete a personal information form, which includes the participant's name, contact information, emergency contact information, medical history and medications, allergies and the participant's doctors names. A photo - showing only the participants head and shoulders - is then taped to the front of the completed information sheet.

The yellow dot decal provided in the program kit is placed in the lower left corner of the participant's vehicle's rear windshield. The decal should be no higher than 3 inches from the bottom of the windshield. This decal alerts first responders that vital information can be found in the vehicle.

Place the completed information sheet, with the attached picture, into the Yellow Dot folder, and then place the folder into the vehicle's glove box.

White Oak Borough Cell Phone Collection

As part of our Domestic Violence Awareness Month observance, White Oak Borough has partnered with the 911 Cell Phone Bank to collect used cell phones for victims of domestic abuse in our area. Over 2 million women each year become victims of domestic violence. Many of these violent incidents can be prevented with a simple tool we all take for granted, the cell phone. Please consider donating you used cell phone. Your donation could be the critical link between law enforcement and someone in trouble. Phones will be collected at the White Oak Borough building.

White Oak Borough Recycling

Wood chips are available to all Borough residents free of charge and can be picked up at the Heritage Hill Park. The ODB Leaf Collection System and the Woodsman Brush Chipper were purchased through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Yard waste recycling is a sensible solid waste management alternative for Pennsylvania municipalities and both programs have helped to reduce the amount of yard waste going into our landfills and at the same time produced beneficial mulch, which can be used for ornamental landscaping or garden pathways.
