‘Yellow Dot’ program, lunch with deputies at schools part Sheriff’s Week

Staff Reports Posted 19 September 2016 at 10:53 am

This week is “Sheriff’s Week” and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office will mark the occasion by having deputies in local schools having lunch with students, Sheriff Randy Bower said.

Today, deputies will eat lunch at Kendall, Lyndonville and Medina high schools. On Tuesday, they will be at Holley and Albion high schools, followed by the Albion Middle School on Wednesday. They will visit the Albion elementary and Medina middle schools on Thursday, and will have lunch with students Friday at the Kendall and Medina elementary schools, and Holley Junior-Senior High School.

The Sheriff’s Office will also unveil the “Yellow Dot” program at stops with senior citizens this week, Bower said. The Yellow Dot is a free program designed to help first responders provide life-saving medical attention during that first “golden hour” after a crash or other emergency. A Yellow Dot in the driver’s-side rear window of a vehicle will alert first responders that vital medical information is stored in the glove compartment.

Sheriff’s personnel will present the program at three nutri-fair sites (Albion, Lyndonville and Kendall) this week.

Bower also said there will be village and town park clean-up detail by the inmates of the Orleans County Jail.
