Stroke Awareness 

With hospitals around the country reporting a recent drop in the number of stroke cases arriving in their emergency rooms, health experts suspect that fear of COVID-19 may be causing people to avoid going to the hospital and calling 911 for non-COVID related medical emergencies, like stroke. EMS can help by educating patients and the general public about the importance of calling 911 for help when people are experiencing symptoms of stroke.  Learn More
