SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Fast access to your medical history could mean the difference between life or death. Now Springfield Representative Sara Lampe, is sponsoring legislation that could help emergency responders and you.
The program would allow people to put a yellow sticker in the rear windshield of their car;
that alerts emergency crews the person in the car has some sort of medical history that could be useful information to emergency crews; and to check the glove box.
Inside will be an envelope that has their medical information on it; whether it be what kind of medication that person may be taking or warning of a particular illness.
The program is voluntary; the department of revenue will decide how much it will cost motorist who want to participate. Representative Lampe says the bill has already gone through the state House of Representatives and now has to pass in the Senate before it can be signed into law.
