Stroke Center


If this is an emergency, please dial 911 immediately and explain that the person is experiencing stroke symptoms.

“Stroke Heroes Act F.A.S.T.” because every minute counts.

  • Face: Does one side of the face droop? Ask the person to smile.
  • Arm: Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
  • Speech: Is the speech slurred? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence, such as "Jack ran to the store." Is the sentence repeated correctly?
  • Time: If someone is showing signs of any of these symptoms, time is essential.
