June 10, 2013

     Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (R-Merrick) and Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano will be sponsoring a free Senior ID Card Program in Merrick.

     The program will be held from 12:00 pm- 3:00 pm on Monday, July 1st at the Merrick Library, located at 2279 Merrick Avenue in Merrick. All Nassau County residents ages 65 and over are eligible to participate and receive a free senior ID card. No appointments are necessary.

     The program allows seniors to obtain a free wallet-sized ID card which includes their photo and personal contact information (name, address, phone number, date of birth) along with an emergency contact name and phone number which could be useful to emergency responders. Seniors can carry the card in their wallet so that first responders will know who to contact in the event of an emergency where the senior is unable to communicate with them.

     Residents who would like more information about the free Senior ID Card program at the Merrick Library on July 1st can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
