Know the signs of a stroke!
If you think you’re having a stroke or witnessing one, call 9-1-1 immediately!
Use F.A.S.T. to memorize the signs.
F – Face drooping
Does the side of the face droop or is it numb? Is the person’s smile uneven?
A – Arm weakness
Is one arm weak or numb? Does one arm drift downward?
S – Speech difficulty
Is speech slurred? Can the person repeat sentences correctly?
T – Time to call 9-1-1.
If someone shows any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately.
