Every adult should know their blood pressure. Do you know yours? High blood pressure can lead to stroke, vision loss, dementia, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease/failure, and sexual dysfunction. There is nothing more personal than your blood pressure.
The Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District offers free blood pressure screenings on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from Noon to 4 p.m. at BiMart in Sisters. You can also stop by the main fire station in Sisters at 301 South Elm Street for a free blood pressure screening. High blood pressure is known as a “silent killer.” Getting your blood pressure checked can be fast, easy and free. Fire Corps members provide you with a BP log card with your blood pressure reading and the date. Having your blood pressure checked at least once a month and recording the results on the log card each time, provides your doctor with a picture over time. We’d love to see you at BiMart on the third “Lucky Number Tuesday” of each month.
