Stroke is An Emergency! Act F.A.S.T.
  • F - Face. Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
  • A - Arms. Ask the person to raise both arms. Is one arm numb or drift downward? 
  • S - Speech.  Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are their words slurred? Can the person repeat the sentence correctly?
  • T - Time. If the person shows any of these signs CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY! Getting that person to the hospital as quickly as possible is the key to minimizing the damage of stroke!
