My doctor wants me to have my blood pressure checked on a regular basis. Do I have to pay to have my blood pressure checked at the local fire station?


There is no charge for routine blood pressure checks. The fire department will take your blood pressure at the station if you stop by. Blood pressures are taken when the fire/EMS units are in the station and not responding to calls. The fire department may not always have someone in the station depending on call volume. However, blood pressure emergencies should be treated as an emergency and call 911.
