STROKE- think F.A.S.T.

Stroke is the 3rd leading killer in the US and the faster you get someone to the hospital the better chance they will have to recover enough to go home. There are drugs that treat stroke but only work if the person can take them with in the first few hours after signals begin. To recognize a stroke victim just think F.A.S.T!

F is for face, weakness on one side of the face.

A is for Arm, weakness or numbness in one arm.

S is for Speech, slurred speech or trouble speaking.

T is for Time, Time to call 911 if you see any of these signals, you only have to see one. You could save someones life if you think fast.
