The National Stroke Association's FAST
guidelines can help you save the life of someone experiencing a stroke. Quick action can reduce the chance of brain damage and disability.
Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?
Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?
If you observe any of these signs, call 911 immediately.
