Can I get my blood pressure checked at a fire station?

blood pressure checkYes. Free blood pressure checks are conducted at all Savannah Fire stations whenever firefighters are present. Look for a free blood pressure check sign out front. 

Savannah Fire also conducts blood pressure checks at senior citizens centers, churches and community centers. Contact the Public Information Office at 912-644-5957 to schedule blood pressure checks for your community group.

High blood pressure can lead to devastating consequences, such as stroke, heart failure, heart attack, vision loss, and kidney disease. However, high blood pressure typically has no symptoms.
