Do you want to become a FAST Responder and join this highly respected medical charity on Camposol? 

Call into The Social Centre on Tuesday mornings for a warm welcome, or email

All our Responders are fully trained First Responders and are authorised by the Murcian Health Authority (MHA) to operate the Automatic Electronic Defibrillator (AED) and to perform CPR.

If you have a medical emergency you must call 112, ask for an operator who speaks your language if you are not fluent in Spanish. Give them details of the emergency and then call FAST on 868 487 015. We normally can respond within 8-10 minutes, giving assistance where necessary. We also have an emergency telephone service where we can give helpful information. As we have a shortage of Responders, we will 

try to give 24/7 service. If we cannot have a Responder on duty, we will provide a telephone advice service.

We will keep the people of Camposol up to date regarding the lifesaving service on social media, the FAST Facebook page and our WEB page is where you can find more up to date information. 

The insurance is now in place and the Association of Volunteers will now accept our membership. This is a major step! We will be running a training course very soon. Look at the FAST facebook page and our web page for more exciting news.

To give 24/7 cover, we need to recruit more people to be trained as Responders. Most Responders will always respond in pairs day or night. We have flexible shifts, 6 hours, 12 hours or 24 to suit the individual.

If you have symptoms of Covid you should stay at home and phone 900 121 212 explain your symptoms and they will advise you on what you should do. Lateral flow tests are available from the pharmacy. By testing you may stop infection spreading.

If you live on your own and keep in touch with family abroad, why not give them the FAST number or webpage address. We recently received a request via the webpage to check on a relative living on Camposol. We checked on the individual, but unfortunately the individual had passed away. We were able to alert the authorities.

When FAST Responders attend an emergency we can stop catastrophic bleeding, ensure the casualty has an open airway and if required give lifesaving CPR. Both the FAST vehicles are fully equipped with defibrillators, blood clotting type bandages and all the other kit required of a first Responder. We also comfort other members of the household and give advice on what the medics will want to see when they arrive. 

Also if the patient has to stay in hospital we have a list of things they may need for a hospital stay. If you need any help or support, give us a call. If we cannot help we will direct you to the correct place.

FAST Nurses

The FAST Nurses are back on a Monday morning. Give them a wave and any donation is gratefully accepted.  

Our Mental Health phone is manned 24/7. If you are feeling depressed, alone or just want to talk to someone then call this new number 0034 613 205 895. There will be someone there to listen to you and give you advice if you need it. 

The local council has said that they will provide Defibrillators for Camposol and FAST will carry out the necessary training.
