State Sen. Charles J. Fuschillo Jr. (R-Merrick) will partner with Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano in sponsoring a free senior ID card program in Roosevelt and Bellmore.

One program will be held Friday from noon to 3 p.m. at the Roosevelt Library, 27 W. Fulton Ave. in Roosevelt. The other event will be held March 15, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Bellmore Library, 2288 Bedford Ave. in Bellmore.

All county residents 65 and older are eligible to participate and receive a free senior ID card, officials said. No appointments are necessary. The wallet-sized senior ID card includes a photo and the holder’s personal data, as well as emergency contact phone numbers, which could be useful to paramedics in a medical emergency.
