Heart and Stroke - New Signs of Stroke Campaign

The Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) has recently announced a new and enhanced signs of stroke campaign which encourages Canadians to recognize the signs of stroke and act FAST.

FACE is it drooping?

ARMS can you raise both?

SPEECH is it slurred or jumbled?

TIME to call 9-1-1 right away.

Act FAST because the quicker you act, the more of the person you save.

For information on this campaign please visit, www.heartandstroke.ca/FAST
