The FAST2016 Responders have had another busy month, being on call 24 hours a day and training every Tuesday and extra training provided by Debbie on Fridays.

During the past few weeks, we have recruited additional Volunteers who will receive guidance and training from our Training Team to become fully qualified and accredited FAST2016 Responders on Camposol.

Unfortunately, due to the shortage of FAST2016 Responders, there have been a few days over the last few months where our service has been suspended. There is a pre-recorded message on the emergency number for such an occasion. However, we are hoping that full cover will imminently be resumed as soon as our new recruits are fully trained and accredited by Murcia Health Authority.

We should also like to welcome back Carl, Mandy and Suzanne to FAST2016; it is always nice to welcome old friends back to our team.

FAST 2016 are planning a Health Awareness Day on Wednesday 28th September at Mariano’s, Camposol A; everyone is welcome. More details will be posted on our web page or from the bookstall on the Friday Market on Camposol B.

This initiative may be expanded to get the health awareness message across to various groups for the benefit of the community of Camposol; more information on our web page.

You may have noticed that we have changed the colour of our tops since we reformed in June, but rest assured that you will still receive the same assistance from all the Responders and Supporters as previously.
