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

     The program will be held from 12:00 pm- 4:00 pm on Wednesday, June 5th at the Farmingdale Library, located at 116 Merritts Road in Farmingdale. 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 on June 5th can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 516-882-0630 or Senator Hannon’s office at 516-739-1700.
