IN A MEDICAL EMERGENCY CALL 112 THEN FAST ON 968 970 626

CST/FAST is a group of volunteers based on Camposol, Mazarrón. Our purpose is to attend all medical emergencies on Camposol before the emergency services arrive. We also attend if the call does not require an ambulance. We provide information over the phone and support to the patient and family when we arrive.

FAST was called out 13 times in July resulting in 12 ambulances being called. The FAST Responders provided comfort and support to family and friends whilst waiting for the arrival of the ambulance teams. Since FAST was formed in 2011 they have attended over 1,000 calls for help.

FAST is the charity on Camposol who look after people.

When visitors arrive in the summer there can be up to 8,000+ people on Camposol. Every one of them can rest assured that FAST is here to help them. It costs a lot of money to keep this service going 24/7 virtually every day of the year. We are always looking for more ways to raise funds. We had our Summer Fayre on Saturday 28th July when we raised just over €3,000. This was in part due to the assistance we had from our Support Group who worked so hard on the day. Responders also play a good part in raising funds such as dressing up as nurses on a Monday morning and collecting on the dual carriageway. If you can, drop some change into their boxes, or just give them a friendly wave please, it is much appreciated.
