The City of San Marcos is partnering with San Diego County in the “Love Your Heart” campaign to help residents take charge of their own health by offering free blood pressure screenings.

On Thursday, Feb. 14 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., residents will be able to have their blood pressure checked at two San Marcos sites:

San Marcos Senior Activity Center at 111 Richmar Ave.

San Marcos Library, 2 Civic Center Drive.

Representatives from San Marcos Fire Department will be on hand to assist with the blood pressure readings while providing heart disease education and awareness.

According to San Diego County Health officials, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and the second leading cause of death in San Diego County. Getting a blood pressure check is a simple step to take for improved heart health.

The City’s participation in the “Love Your Heart” campaign supports the County’s Live Well, San Diego! initiative, which strives to improve the health, safety, and economic well-being of every resident in the region.

For more information about free blood pressure screenings in San Marcos, please contact the San Marcos Fire Department at (760) 744-1050, ext. 3410.
