10-30: FREE Senior ID Program

Senior ID Program



Senator Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau) announces a FREE Senior I.D. Program on Thursday, October 30th, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Island Trees Public Library (Located at 36 Farmedge Road, Levittown).  This program is being held in conjunction with Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray and Town Clerk Nasrin G. Ahmad.  There is no fee.

 

The program allows seniors to obtain a free wallet-sized ID card which includes a photo, the holder’s personal contact information (name, address, phone number, date of birth), and an emergency contact name and phone number which could be useful to emergency responders. Seniors can carry the card in their wallet so that emergency responders will know who to contact if the senior is in an emergency situation and cannot communicate.

 

The Senior ID card:

 

ü  Includes your personal contact information

ü  Includes your photo

ü  Lists an emergency contact name and phone number

ü  Is helpful to police, fire or ambulance responders in an emergency situation

 

To make the process as smooth and quick as possible, seniors should have the following information with them:

 

·     Emergency Contact Person (Name & Phone Number)

·     Name of doctor and phone number

·     Allergies (if any), for example “penicillin”

·     Medical conditions (if any), for example “diabetes”

·     Blood type
