Signs of a Stroke? Call 9-1-1

February 22, 2018

Stroke is a medical emergency. If you experience any of these signs, call 9-1-1. Do not drive to the hospital. An ambulance will get you to the best hospital for stroke care.

Face - is it drooping?

Arms - can you raise both?

Speech - is it slurred or jumbled?

Time - to call 9-1-1 right away.

Experience stroke through the eyes of a witness

Would you know when someone is having a stroke? Tim's wife spots her husband having a stroke and asks her daughter to call 9-1-1 right away.  By knowing the signs of stroke and acting FAST, she saves her husband.
