Stroke is a medical emergency! Time is critical if you are having a stroke.
Call 9-1-1 if you or someone you know is experiencing any of these signs or symptoms
The National Stroke Association says you can use the acronym FAST:
Face - Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
Arms - Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
Speech - Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?
Time - If you observe any of these signs, call 9-1-1 immediately.
