Blood Pressure Screenings
Blood Pressure measurements are available to be performed at all Hoover Fire Department stations. Paramedics will measure your blood pressure and will record the reading on a card for a permanent record to be shown to your physician or other health care provider. We do not maintain records, it is the responsibility of the citizen to maintain the card given.
If you are in a non-emergency situation and are not having any symptoms to indicate blood pressure problems or any other medical problem, feel free to stop by your local station at most any time. Persons experiencing symptoms of high blood pressure complications or other medical problems should stay at home or your current location and call 911 for assistance. It may be dangerous to drive to a fire station with certain medical conditions.
Fire Stations respond to emergency calls and perform several duties outside of the fire station and may not be present when you come by. If no one is present at the station, please return at a later time and hopefully someone will be present to check your blood pressure. We apologize, but some emergency events are beyond our control and can not be predicted.
Emergency Phones are located at the main entrance of all stations if you do have an emergency and no one is present.
