Visit Georgetown Fire & Medical Stations for Free Blood Pressure Checks
and Learn About Recommendations for Managing High Blood Pressure!
Georgetown Fire & Medical invites members of the Georgetown community to visit their neighborhood station to get their blood pressure checked and learn about managing high blood pressure.
It is important for everyone to monitor their blood pressure and Georgetown Fire & Medical is here to help. Unless Georgetown firefighters are engaged attending to an emergency, they are available to check your blood pressure, advise you on understanding it, and giving you recommendations for managing high blood pressure. Another name for high blood pressure is hypertension. About 80 million U.S. adults suffer from this condition. It is important to know if you have high blood pressure and need to seek treatment by a physician. Treatment measures can be as simple as lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, or your doctor may recommend medication. Georgetown firefighters can explain what your numbers mean, after they evaluate your blood pressure.
All Georgetown firefighters are trained as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and a Paramedic, for Advanced life Support (ALS) measures, is a part of most crews.
