July was a very busy month for FAST2016 responders, some covering more than 8 shifts of 12 hours.
Training in CPR was also carried out this month provided by a training company authorised by the Murcian Heath Authority, so we will have a few more authorised responders. There were a few days and nights that we were still unable to cover. We still need more responders and supporters. It is a very rewarding thing to be involved in, and a great bunch of people.
If you call the FAST2016 number and there is no responder on duty there is a helpful recorded message. Remember to call 112 in an emergency.
There are a lot of people to thank this month for their continuing hard work and support for this valuable service on this great urbanisation Camposol:
Our in-house training team, John Scott, Debbie and Mike Bell.
Val Caffin who held the fort for the group while we reformed.
Our new trainer who will be authorised by the Murcian Health Authority, Baz Hamilton is busy getting ready to join the training team.
Thanks to Paula Klages for decorating the tile that will be placed outside the Club Social. The FAST2016 team received the plaque from Antonio Hernandez Benitez.
We are very grateful and our thanks go to the following groups and businesses:
On Tuesday 12th July we were presented with a cheque for €650 by the Camposol Golf Association.
On Saturday 16th we were presented with a donation of €200 from Vinny at Another World Properties while we were at the Los Palacios Garden Fête. While there Debbie carried out blood pressure checks for passers by. We also had a recruitment stand where we explained what we did on Camposol and of course tried to encourage more volunteers to join us.
Look out for the FAST2016 Health Awareness Day in September – lots of information on how to stay young and beautiful. This will be held at the Cultural Centre. The FAST nurses cannot help with this information, but the FAST nurses will be out on Mondays collecting for this great cause. (They unfortunately are not available for marriage, although they have been propositioned!)
There is a trip organised to Alicante Castle and Spanish Galleon on 23rd September. Tickets are available from the bookstall on the second and last Friday each month outside T.J. Electrical (Euronics).
