Purpose

I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a free Senior ID Program in partnership with Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano on June 26, 2013. This free program, available to Nassau County residents ages 65 and over, will take place from 1pm-4pm at the West Hempstead Public Library, located at 500 Hempstead Avenue in West Hempstead.

The Senior ID card:

• Includes personal contact information
• Includes a photo
• Lists an emergency contact name and phone number
• Is helpful to police, fire or ambulance responders in an emergency situation
• Can be kept in a wallet so that emergency responders will know who to contact if a senior is in an emergency situation and cannot communicate.

There is no charge for the card and no appointments are necessary. If you have a friend or know someone who would benefit from this program, please feel free to pass this information along to them!

For more information, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my district office at (516) 766-8383.
