There Is No Luck Involved, Acting FAST Saves Lives

Use FAST to remember the warning signs of stroke:

FACE:  Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?

ARMS: Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?

SPEECH: Ask the person to repeat a simple phrase. Is their speech slurred or strange?

TIME: If you observe any of these signs,
call 9-1-1 immediately.

Play these four fun  games to learn more about the signs and symptoms of stroke.
