  • To remember the signs of stroke, 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 downward? Is one arm weak or numb? 
    • S = SPEECH. Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Is speech slurred? Is the sentence repeated correctly?
    • T = TIME. If the person shows any of these symptoms, call 9-1-1 immediately!
