Blood Pressure Screening
As a courtesy to our community, individuals may come by any fire station to have their blood pressure taken. Individuals will receive a card to record the readings for each visit to provide their physician. While visiting the stations, please take time to discuss any medical problems with our emergency medical personnel on hand. We also encourage you to learn more about our department, our programs, and more especially, the personnel that make up Palm Coast Fire Rescue. Individuals may stop by the fire stations anytime between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. to receive their courtesy blood pressure checks.
Home Safety Inspections
Any resident within the City of Palm Coast may call the Fire/Rescue department to request and schedule a free courtesy home safety inspection. This inspection includes assistance in developing and practicing a home escape plan, checking and/or installing additional smoke alarms, and proper storage of residential hazardous materials. In addition, our personnel will check for use of extension cords or other conditions that may cause fire or injury. We can also make suggestions on securing items and areas that may be hazardous for children. By no means does this release the resident from the overall responsibility of home safety. This is only a way to inform and educate our residents of safer habits to practice in the home.
