If you have stroke symptoms, think FAST
Remember the acronym FAST to help identify the symptoms that may be stroke warning signs:
F= FACE: Ask the person to smile. Does the face droop or look uneven?
A= ARM: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does an arm drift or is it numb?
S= SPEECH: Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Does speech sound strange or hard to understand?
T= TIME: If the answer to any of the above is yes, time is critical. Call 911 immediately.
