Quick Stroke Treatment Can Save Lives

If you’re having a stroke, it’s critical that you get medical attention right away. Immediate treatment may minimize the long-term effects of a stroke and even prevent death. Thanks to recent advances, stroke treatments and survival rates have improved greatly over the last decade.

The warning signs for a stroke are the sudden onset of the following:

  • Weakness, numbness or paralysis on one side of your body
  • Slurred speech or difficulty understanding others
  • Blindness in one or both eyes
  • Dizziness
  • Severe headache with no apparent cause

Educate yourself on the warning signs of stroke — and do it F.A.S.T.

F – Face drooping
A – Arm weakness
S – Speech slurred
T – Time to call 911


Don't Die of Doubt

When an emergency strikes, hospitals are still the safest place – even during a pandemic. Call 911 at the first sign of a heart attack or stroke.
