The Irish Heart Foundation’s Act F.A.S.T. campaign aims to raise awareness of the signs of stroke and the importance of calling an ambulance as soon as possible.

F.A.S.T. stands for Face, Arms, Speech and Time.

Face – can the person smile? Has their mouth or eye drooped?
Arms – can the person raise both arms?
Speech – can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?
Time – call 112 or 999 for an ambulance if you spot any one of these signs.

If you recognise any of the signs of a stroke, call 112 or 999 immediately.
