FAST - The acronym to know for signs of a stroke

If you, or some around you, shows any of these signs, EVERY SECOND COUNTS.  CALL 9-1-1

Other warning signs of stroke include:

  • Sudden onset of weakness or numbness/tingling in the face, arm, or leg on one side of the body
  • Sudden trouble seeing out of one or both eyes
  • Sudden confusion, or trouble understanding
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination
  • Anything “odd” that “just doesn’t seem normal”
