How to Recognize Stroke Symtoms FAST


Face Drooping:
     Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop or is it
Arm Weakness:
     Ask the person to raise both arms. Is one arm weak or numb? Does one arm drift
Speech Difficulty:
     Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence, like “the sky is blue.” Is the sentence
     repeated correctly? Are they unable to speak, or are they hard to understand?
Time to Call 911:
     If the person shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call
     911 immediately!
