The FAST test identifies up to 89% of strokes and TIA’s and is an easy way to recognise and remember the key signs of stroke, and what to do when they occur.
Using the FAST test involves asking three simple questions:
Face - Check their face. Has their mouth drooped?
Arms - Can they lift both arms?
Speech - Is their speech slurred? Do they understand you?
Time - Is critical. If you see any of these signs call 000 straight away.
We are advertising the FAST message in March, June and October this year, if you would like to help support our efforts, you can hold your own FAST avtivity to help to spread the FAST messsage.
