May is Stroke Awareness Month.

React FAST to Stroke Warning Signs.

 

 

 FACE

Does one side of the face look uneven or droop?

Ask them to smile.

 

ARMS

Does one arm appear to be weak or numb?

Ask them to raise both of their arms. Does one arm hang lower?

 

 

SPEECH

Does their speech seem unusual or slurred?

Ask them to repeat a simple phrase.

 

 

TIME

If any of these signs are observed,

call 9-1-1 immediately!

 

    

 

Every minute matters. React FAST by calling 911 at the first sign of a stroke.
