1st responder cards
go to Putnam seniors
PUTNAM — The Town of Putnam’s Commission on Aging (COA) released the initial batch of “Life File Cards” to Putnam Seniors. The idea for these “Life File Cards”, an info card for First Responders to reference when arriving at emergency situations in elderly homes, was brought to the Putnam COA by friends in a neighboring community.
Thanks to generous sponsors, Archambault Insurance Associates and Jennifer Lehto of Kazantzis Real Estate, these valuable cards came to fruition with no cost to taxpayers or seniors.
Tammy Szpyrka, Putnam EMS Administrator, is looking forward to getting the “Life File Cards” out to the seniors in the town, and then having access to the cards, filled with medical and contact information, when they respond to calls.
Adding to the community effort on this project, Chase Graphics designed and supplied the cards, while the Relay for Life team at Putnam High School, under leadership of Shane Donahue, packaged the cards for distribution.
