Empower others to react, not regret.

If you suspect a loved one may be having a stroke or you realize that something about them suddenly seems off, this is the time to react.

Remember, calling 911 is the right thing to do, even if you are wrong. Calling 911 and getting EMS care could have a lasting impact on a loved one.

Let your friends and family know that:

Urgency is key

Hesitation and fear cost time. As soon as you notice potential signs of stroke, call 911.

Know the symptoms

Stroke is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Signs and symptoms can be subtle and easily missed. If something seems wrong, it’s vital to react.

Spread the word

More people in the US have strokes than heart attacks. Everyone should know how to identify signs of stroke.
