There are now operators on the 112 emergency line who will speak in your language if not Spanish. In a medical emergency, call 112 and ask for an operator who can speak your language, then call FAST on 968 970 626. If you cannot get through, call 634 327 904 or 634 307 986.
In these difficult times FAST is still trying its best to help the people on Camposol. We can supply information at this time regarding medical emergencies and what you may need when the ambulance arrives.
We are not allowed to attend an emergency situation due to the isolation rules. That may change in the weeks to come. When that happens, we will be allowed to attend calls on Camposol and Saladillo only. There will be more information as we get it on our Facebook page and Preguntas y Mas.
When FAST is allowed to attend in person again we may have to take extra precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. We are taking advice from the Murcia Health Authority and the European Resuscitation Council on how we can treat patients after this pandemic.
Our Responders will require training as we have not been able to train since March. We are looking at getting all our Responders trained and available within two weeks after the restrictions are lifted.
FAST is always looking for new members to join us, so if you can spare the time, come along to our training sessions on a Tuesday morning at the Social Centre, Camposol B. You will be made most welcome and you will be able to learn how we treat patients when we are called out. With a few basic skills you could save a life. There is also a very active social side to FAST if you want to make friends and meet people.
Giving your time is the most precious thing you can give and the satisfaction you get from helping someone is very rewarding. All training is free to the Responders and our Fundraising Team raises money to allow us to keep operating.
When all the restrictions are lifted, the FAST Nurses will again be out looking for you to drop a donation in their buckets. We are also looking to make our presence known more on Camposol by having ‘pop up’ displays at various locations where we can give information about FAST and how you could help.
If you do not want to become a Responder, there is the Fundraising Team of supporters who do a great job raising much-needed funds to keep FAST operating.
We hope to be able to return to our normal service towards the end of June.
All We Do Is For All Of You.
