PA Yellow Dot and Emergency Contact Information Programs 

The Pennsylvania 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 vehicle's 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.   

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 participant's 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. 

Interested individuals can get a yellow dot packet by visiting and completing the request form. Only one packet is required per vehicle, but participants can print out multiple medical information sheets from the website to insert multiple family members' information into the single folder. 

Another program that was implemented is the Emergency Contact Information program.  The emergency contact information program is a program where individuals can list two emergency contacts via PennDOT's website using their photo ID or driver's license.  The emergency contacts that individuals list are to be contacted in the event of an emergency and cannot speak for themselves.  The information is stored in JNET, a secure database that is accessible only by law enforcement, and the victim's ID information is keyed into the system to find their contacts. 

Please visit the above links for more information on each program.

In an effort to continue to provide you with the professional services that you receive from your Police and Fire Departmentís, we offer to every alarmed residence and business a Borough Emergency Alarm Notification form. The last update was conducted in late December of 2004.

The information obtained from the form is used to make notifications in the event of an emergency or an alarm at your business or home. The information is kept confidential and kept on record at the police department and at the Lebanon County Communicationís Center.

Ideally we would like to update this list every 2 years so that our list remains current. We rely on you, the business or home owner to contact us with any change to your emergency notification so that we have the current information and not need it, rather than needing the information, and not having it.

At any time, you may call the Police Department at 717-274-2510 to request a new form to replace an outdated one and the form can be mailed to you, you may pick one up at the Police Department, or click on the "ALARM FORM" below to fill one out.

Shift Exchange Program


On September 05, 2003, the Annville Township and Cleona Borough Police Department's, entered into a inter-municipal cooperative agreement (Shift Exchange Program) for the purpose of providing additional police services in each municipality.

The Chiefs of both departments meet and agree on specific dates and times to cover each departments "open" shifts. The amount of shifts covered each month vary, depending on available manpower, each departments current schedule, and the specific needs of the department or municipality. Most shifts covered are during "peak" times, and include full police services such as patrol, criminal investigations, responding to complaints, and traffic enforcement. Each officer of both departments are duly sworn officers in both municipalities, and have full arrest and police powers as if they were in their home municipality.

Unlike programs such as police regionalization or contracted services where there is a fee for services , this service is provided to the public in each municipality without financial compensation to either the department, officer's or the respective municipality . Residents should call their respective departments for police services, or call 717-272-2054 for the Lebanon County Police Dispatch, and a dispatcher will direct your call to the appropriate "on duty" department, or DIAL 911 for all EMERGENCIES.
