This year we’re celebrating everyday Australians who know and can recognise the signs of stroke. They are F.A.S.T. Heroes! Across Australia, F.A.S.T. Heroes can save lives, simply by knowing and recognising the F.A.S.T. signs of stroke (Face, Arms, Speech, Time) and calling an ambulance immediately. They know that stroke is always a medical emergency and time is critical.
This National Stroke Week, spread awareness for the signs of stroke so that everyone can become a F.A.S.T Hero and potentially save the life of a loved one, a colleague, a stranger or even themselves.
