- F is for Face. Ask the person to smile and watch the face. Do you see any drooping? Is the face responding the way it normally should?
- A is for Arms. Ask the person to lift both arms up into the air. Watch to see if one side looks like it has more strength or control than the other.
- S is for Speech. Ask the person to say a simple sentence. Someone experiencing a stroke will often sound drunk or garbled, slurring certain words like they're difficult to form.
- T is for Time. Take note of the time, when the symptoms started and how long they've been going on. That could be valuable information to first responders or 911 operators. Pass the information on when possible.
