Know Signs Of Stroke & Act F.A.S.T.

F.A.S.T Campaign Project Manager from the Irish Heart Foundation, Ms Helena O’Donnell reports: –

“Today we launched our F.A.S.T. campaign for stroke.

When someone has a stroke, minutes matter: because two million brain cells die every minute after a stroke.

The Irish Heart Foundation in partnership with the Government of Ireland is asking people to know the signs of stroke and to Act F.A.S.T.

We’re launching the F.A.S.T. campaign today with a video showing the signs of stroke and what you should do in an emergency. Please take a minute to watch it so you know to Act F.A.S.T.

It’s so important that as many people as possible see the video above.

By encouraging others to Act F.A.S.T. by calling 112 or 999 you are saving lives and giving people a chance at recovery.”

NOTE: You can ORDER your postal delivery of free posters and leaflets for sharing in your workplace or community, by emailing info@irishheart.ie and providing your full address and Eircode.
