May is Stroke Awareness Month.

React FAST to Stroke Warning Signs.




Does one side of the face look uneven or droop?

Ask them to smile.



Does one arm appear to be weak or numb?

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




Does their speech seem unusual or slurred?

Ask them to repeat a simple phrase.




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.
