Community Support Team – FAST 2016
Camposol urbanisation near Mazarrón is very fortunate to have a group of volunteers who respond to calls for assistance when a medical emergency arises on the urbanisation. The responders can give life saving treatment and comfort to casualties and family members until the medical services arrive.
Unfortunately the service had to be suspended in December 2015 due to the discovery that they were not operating within the Spanish regulations for medical emergencies. Since then the committee have been tirelessly working to reinstate the service to Camposol. The FAST 2016 committee are now confident that they can soon continue the service. The Murcian Health Authority have all the documents needed to give the go ahead. Once the permission to proceed has been given, FAST 2016 will be back responding to medical emergencies 24 hours a day 7 days a week for residents and visitors to Camposol.
Training of responders has been continuing during the period that the service has been withdrawn. New responders have been recruited and will play an important role once their training has been completed. Part of that training includes scenarios to enable the responders to practice their skills out on the urbanisation in realistic situations.
During the month of May the FAST 2016 vehicles and responders will be seen around Camposol responding to these training scenarios.
Fund raising by the supporters has continued to allow the service to be funded:
The bookstall on the 2nd and last Friday of the month outside TJ Electricals on Camposol B
The FAST 2016 May Fair at Mariano’s, Camposol A will be held on the 28TH May from 11am-3pm with the normal traders, along with a cake stall, tombola, jams and chutneys and the FAST famous Prize Draw with fantastic prizes. The fair raises much needed funds to allow the organisation to provide this valued service to residents and visitors to Camposol.
