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

     The program will be held from 12:00 pm- 3:00 pm on Friday, May 31st at the Wantagh Public Library, located at 3285 Park Avenue in Wantagh. 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 cannot communicate with them.

     Residents who would like more information about the free Senior ID Card program at the Wantagh Library on May 31st can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630.
