May Is Stroke Awareness Month
Be aware of your own stroke risk factors. Research has shown that there are 10 modifiable risk factors that account for 90% of strokes. Hypertension is the single most important modifiable risk factor. Having regular blood pressure checks is an important first step in controlling your stroke risk. Other unhealthy behaviors such as physical inactivity, poor diet and smoking increase your risk too. Now ask yourself. Are you at an elevated risk?
Know the signs and symptoms of a stroke. Use the acronym FAST to identify the most common stroke symptoms.
F – Facial drooping on one side
A – Arm weakness or numbness
S – Speech is slurred or strange
T – Time -Call 9-1-1 immediately if you observe any of these symptoms

CPR – Public Service Video
April 2018– Originally launched in 2016, this video produced by LFD3 is worth revisiting! Our Paramedics and Firefighters want you to know that you can help in a cardiac emergency until rescue crews arrive by learning simple 3-step “hands only” CPR. Please watch and share with others.

“Text to 911” Available in Thurston County
CALL IF YOU CAN – TEXT IF YOU CAN’T – TEXT TO 9-1-1 is not a replacement to a voice call to 9-1-1 in an emergency situation, but rather as an enhancement to reach 9-1-1 services in specific situations such as:
- The caller is hearing/voice impaired
- A medical emergency that renders the person incapable of speech
- When speaking out loud would put the caller in danger, such as a home invasion, domestic violence situation or an active shooter scenario
- Any other emergency that makes it impossible to speak out loud.

Am I Having a Heart Attack?
First Signs of a Heart Attack may include…
- Chest pain or pressure that lasts for more than a few minutes
- Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck or arms
- Jaw pain or toothache
- Lightheadedness, nausea, sweating, or shortness of breath
Not all of these signs occur in every attack. They may disappear and come back. If they return, call 9-1-1 immediately. The important thing is to act fast. Don’t wait!
Heart attack signs in women can be harder to detect. In addition to the typical symptoms listed above, some women may experience any of the following:
- cold, sweaty skin
- unexplained anxiety or nervousness
- weakness or overwhelming fatigue
- swelling in the lower legs or ankles
Because women tend to view heart attack as a man’s illness and don’t consider themselves to be at risk, many minimize their symptoms and place themselves at greater risk by delaying treatment. Again, the important thing is to act fast!
Be Prepared for Power Outages
Power outages can happen anytime of the year. Make sure you and your family knows the steps to take during a blackout. Above all, BE PREPARED. Pleave view the FEMA video below.
