Pennsylvania Yellow Dot and Emergency Contact Program
In 2012, in cooperative efforts between the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDot), the state departments of Health and Aging, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, first responders, and local law enforcement, the Yellow Dot and Emergency Contact Information Programs were created to assist drivers and passengers in the "golden hour" of emergency care following a vehicle accident. The Yellow Dot program allows Commonwealth residents to complete a personal information form, which includes the participant's name, photo, emergency contact information, medical history, medications, allergies, and doctors. This form is placed in the glove compartment of the vehicle and a yellow dot placed in the lower left corner of the rear window. This is intended to alert first responders to the presence of emergency information in the event the occupants of the vehicle are unable to respond. Additionally, the Emergency Contact Information Program allows residents with a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or identification card to have two emergency contacts listed in a secure database, which is available to law enforcement officers.

How Can Citizens Participate?
Citizens complete a participation form online to have PennDot mail them a Yellow Dot kit. Upon receipt, participants should complete the information section, which includes emergency contact information, medical history, medications, allergies, and doctors. A photo (showing only the head and shoulders) is then taped to the appropriate location inside the booklet. The completed kit should be placed in the vehicle's glove compartment. The Yellow Dot decal is placed in the lower left corner of the vehicle's rear windshield, no higher than 3 inches from the bottom.

Additional information on the two programs are available on the PennDot website at, or

Welcome To East Allen Township

Back in 1842, East Allen Township was established as a rural township consisting of farms and open space. Today, East Allen Township is a blend of farmland; open space; rural developments in the northern to mid parts of the Township. As you travel south through East Allen Township you will find yourself in residential developments with a more suburban lifestyle.

In the 1970’s and into the 1980’s the Township grew in size with some suburban developments, with only a moderate amount of residential development during the housing boom which took place as we moved into this decade. However, with all of the housing development in surrounding municipalities and numerous State Roads running North-South and East-West through our Township, the number of vehicles traveling through East Allen Township each day has increased tremendously. We are not the quiet community we once were.
