In A Medical Emergency Call 112 Then Call FAST On 968 970 626
If you have to call for an ambulance, call 112 and the operator will ask a series of questions so they can prioritise your call. You can ask for an operator to speak in your language if you do not speak Spanish. Then call FAST on 968 970 626
CST/FAST is a fully legally registered and insured charity whose sole purpose is to serve the emergency medical needs of everyone who lives or visits Camposol or Saladillo. If you live on Mazarrón Country Club or Condado de Alhama, you can call the emergency number for advice over the phone. Unfortunately we cannot attend at this time.
FAST is recognised by the British Consulate and the British Embassy in Madrid and the Murcian Health Authority for the work we carry out on Camposol.
All responders and instructors are volunteers who give their time freely.
As promised FAST accounts have been published on local social media sites. If anyone would like more details, please contact us.
Annual Golf Tournament on 21st September was a great success and raised a considerable sum for FAST. Thanks to all the competitors and those who arranged the tournament. The winner’s trophy was presented by Barry Hamilton President of FAST.
In the first week of October we also had a very generous donation from the Silly Old Sods when a cheque was presented to Jenny and Graham Salt, senior members of the FAST committee.
Sadly it seems a growing trend to abuse the emergency services when reacting to an emergency. FAST has experienced several occasions when our Responders have been verbally abused. We will not tolerate harassment or verbal abuse. If presented with this situation, we will have no option but to call for Police assistance so that we can provide the emergency treatment.
Due to the local council procedures, groups using the Social Centre have had to remove lockers and equipment. FAST has purchased a storage facility and sited it behind the centre to house equipment. We would like to thank the council for giving us the site for the storage facility
Why not join FAST as a Supporter or Responder?
You will meet friendly people and become part of a social team. Social events are arranged during the year and we are running a training course early in November for Responders. There is no need to have previous knowledge of first aid, as all training will be provided free of charge. Once trained you will become a First Responder, which is a higher skill level than a First Aider. Our training sessions are Tuesday mornings at the Social Centre, Camposol B. We are very pleased to welcome new members to FAST. If you would like to join this great organisation give us a call. You can help your neighbours on Camposol and maybe save a life. It is a great way to give something back to the community.
When the FASTResponders arrive, they will ask a series of questions, directed at the casualty or the partner. It may seem to delay treatment, but it is important to know if the casualty is allergic to anything, what medication they are on and are they being treated for a medical condition.
