Safety Tip: Stroke awareness

Sherry Wings, our first aid/CPR instructor, has this reminder: Do you know this simple stroke test?

F.A.S.T.

  • Face, is the smile/lips/mouth/eye/eyebrow equal or dripping.
  • Arms – close eyes, raise arms palms up, can they hook them up or does one drift down or drop.
  • Speech-can they repeat a sentence, talk normally?
  • Time – Note what time these started.  Stroke medications are time sensitive, so call 911 immediately!


Think FAST! It could save someone’s life.
