From Headway Ireland’s website:
The Irish Heart Campaign has just launched its F.A.S.T. campaign, which is designed to help people remember the main warning signs of stroke, and to act by dialling 999.
F – Face – has the person’s face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
A – Arms – Can they raise both arms and keep them there?
S – Speech – is their speech slurred?
T -Time to call 999 if you spot any single one of these signs.
F. A. S. T. can help you to rapidly recognise stroke and then act quickly to get medical treatment.
