Resolution 3 passed at the
Alaska State Grange
ALASKA STATE GRANGE
(Sponsored by the North Pole Grange #6)
This resolution was presented in oral form by the North Pole Grange, and sought to have the National Grange adopt the Emergency Card program they were involved in. The Fairbanks North Star Borough issues a Borough Senior Citizen Appreciation Pass which entitles those 60 and over to reduced fees at Borough Facilities and on the Transit System. The grange got them to add emergency card information on the back. Information includes allergies, doctor's name, phone numbers for contacts, etc., including if the carrier is diabetic or has heart disease. Most of the information listed was suggested by the fire department as being information they would like to have about someone who is unable to communicate with them.
(Members voted to give the State Executive Committee power to put this resolution in written form and adopt it. We will publish it here at that time.)
