For Mental Health Assistance 634 308 362
Call FAST On 868 487 015 For Help And Information. We Will Be Able To Give Valuable Assistance And Information Over The Phone.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic FAST is unable to attend patients who call us, but our phone system is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to give advice, information and support in a time of crisis. With the correct advice over the phone you could save a life. Call us we can help.
If you have to call for an ambulance, please call 112. You can ask for an operator to speak in your language if you do not speak Spanish. The operator will ask a series of questions to prioritise your call. You can ask FAST to call for an ambulance for you if you are unable to do so
If you are feeling depressed and alone and you would like to talk with someone trained in Mental Health First Aid you can call us on 634 308 362 day or night. You are not alone. The mental health of society in general has and will be affected by the change in our lifestyles due to the restrictions in place during the COVID-19 virus. Hopefully the vaccine will be available here soon to allow some sort of normality to return.
If you are here on your own, but have family in another country, give them the new FAST number. If your family cannot reach you and are worried about your condition they can call FAST to check on you. We recently had a call from the UK someone was worried about an elderly relative who was not answering calls. They phoned FAST to alert them that their elderly relative may be unwell and not answering the phone. Given the address, a Responder tried to contact the elderly person by calling from the gate. After initially getting no response, the Responder called 112. Entry was gained and the person was taken to hospital, but later released to recover at home. Without the call to FAST the elderly person may not have recovered.

FAST is still looking at purchasing defibrillators for Camposol. These may save a life of someone suffering a heart problem. At the time of writing we have not had a satisfactory response from the local council. Let us hope we can get these defibrillators in place before someone is in need of them. The cost is yet unknown, but we hope to place them at the commercial centres. The money to be used will be what has been donated by the people of Camposol.

The famous FAST Nurses will be back as soon as it is safe to do so.

We have had some people enquire about joining FAST. They have been contacted and we will meet up for a coffee so they can learn what they can to get out of joining. We can also let them know how FAST operates. No past experience is required as all training is provided in house. Giving something back to our community is a very rewarding feeling. If you are interested just email FAST at recruitment@fast2016.org. Without more Responders the service FAST delivers will be greatly reduced.
