National Stroke Week 2020
31 August - 6 September
Across Australia, F.A.S.T. Heroes save lives every day, by simply knowing and recognising the signs of stroke and calling an ambulance immediately. They know that stroke is always a medical emergency and time is critical.
This National Stroke Week we are calling for more F.A.S.T. Heroes to potentially save the life of a loved one, a colleague, a stranger or even themself. Become a F.A.S.T. Hero by learning and sharing the F.A.S.T. message and calling triple 000 straight away if you suspect a stroke.
You can get involved and raise awareness in your own way. In 2020, this might mean making your event or activity virtual. Sign up and receive a free Stroke Week kit to support your activity including a range of hard copy and digital resources.
