  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding

Act Fast. Call 9-1-1!

  • If you think you're having a stroke, call 9-1-1 right away - not a friend.

  • Calling 9-1-1 is the best way to get to the hospital.

  • Emergency medical services (EMS) staff can begin life-saving treatment immediately.

  • You're likely to receive faster treatment at the hospital if you arrive by ambulance.

  • Never drive yourself or have someone drive you to the hospital unless you have no other option
