Did you know that stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in Singapore? As such, it is important to educate our children (five years old and above) on how to spot the symptoms of stroke and empower them to become real-life heroes with the knowledge to save lives.
Stroke is an emergency; remember to act “F.A.S.T” as below:
FACE- Spot stroke:If someone’s face suddenly droops like the number 9
ARM- Spot stroke: If someone is unable to keep one arm up for 9 seconds suddenly
SPEECH– Spot stroke: If someone has problems with speech and finds it difficult to count to 5
TIME– Time to dial 995
