Some experts call it the silent killer. High blood pressure (hypertension) most often has no symptoms,so a significant number of people who have it might not realize it.
Untreated high blood pressure can damage organs over time and lead to stroke or heart disease. Because our pressure changes constantly depending on what we are doing,experts recommend people at risk or people who already have high blood pressure closely monitor it,either weekly or even daily.
One of the many services Black Forest Fire/Rescue offers is free blood pressure checks.
Please feel free to stop by Black Forest Station 1, located at 11445 Teachout Road to receive your blood pressure check.
We will give you a personal record of your blood pressure in order to better assist you with accurate readings and trending of your blood pressures.
