Act FAST in Case of Stroke

Treatment exists to minimize the effects of stroke; however it must be given within three hours of first symptoms.  To recognize stroke symptoms and save a life, learn to think FAST.

F    Face:  Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?

A    Arms:  Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift

S    Speech:  Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence.  
       Are the words slurred?

T    Time:  If you observe any of these signs, it's time to call 9-1-1.
