In A Medical Emergency Call 112 Then Call FAST on 968 970 626

CST/FAST is a fully registered and insured charity whose sole purpose is to serve the emergency medical needs of everyone who lives or visits Camposol. All responders and instructors are volunteers who give their time for the people of Camposol.

Things you can do while waiting for FAST:

  • Ensure the casualty’s airway is open and the patient is breathing.
  • Try to stop catastrophic bleeding by applying direct pressure.
  • Ensure the call to 112 informs the operator that this is a serious incident.
  • You can ask for an English speaking operator if you are not a Spanish speaker.
  • We are part of the bigger team of charity volunteers on Camposol: we meet periodically to discuss items that will make living on Camposol even better for all.

Mandy in Seville

We recently took a coach trip to Seville and Cordoba for 3 nights/4 days in the Don Paco Hotel. A great time was had by all, although the weather could have been better.

The FAST Christmas Fayre on 10th November had the ever-popular cakes and pastries and thanks to those who spent hours baking. Thanks also to the traders, supporters and Responders who all helped to make it a success.

FAST has a bookcase full of books in The Diner on Camposol B Commercial Centre.  For a donation, you can take your pick and feel free to return books there. Thanks to The Diner for this opportunity to boost our funds.

We are applying for the correct licence to operate the weekly bookstall, so hopefully this will soon return.

Don’t forget the famous FAST Nurses and Doctors

They are on the dual carriageway on Camposol on a Monday. Give them a wave or your spare cash; they are always extremely grateful.

Recruitment

We are always ready to welcome new or returning members to the team, whether as a First Responder or a Supporter. Responders are all trained to Murcian Health Authority standards and verified by EMS in the UK. The shifts that are covered are 6/12/24 hours to suit the individual.  There is no need to have previous knowledge of first aid as all training is provided free of charge.  A new recruit training course was held on the week commencing 5th November. The course lasted for three days, covering the legal requirements; how to manage a scene; CPR for adult and children; control of trauma conditions; signs and symptoms of heart problems. The course also includes how to help the emergency services when they arrive. We had 7 new recruits on the course, so well done for volunteering to join this great team.

All FAST members would like to wish all a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas and a Healthy New Year.

Have you filled in the contact details of your relatives or friends on the last page of your passport? This is important if they need to be contacted in an emergency.
