The Evanston fire department will host free monthly health care clinics at city fire stations starting next week.

The clinics will offer health care screenings including blood pressure and pulse and blood glucose level checks to the public. An expert will also be present at each clinic to educate the community on varying health-related topics.

The fire department will host the clinics in collaboration with the city’s Health and Human Services Department.

The first clinic will be held from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 19 at Evanston Fire Station 1, 1332 Emerson St. Locations will rotate among the city’s fire stations each month. The health education topic for the first clinic will be diabetes awareness.

The location, time and topic of each clinic will be posted on the city’s website.
