Do you want to learn first aid and become a responder and join this highly respected charity on Camposol? Call into The Social Centre on Tuesday morning for a warm welcome.
FASTare still seeking legal advice regarding our insurance status. All our responders are fully trained first responders and authorised by the Murcian Health Authority (MHA) to operate the Automatic Electronic Defibrillator (AED) and to perform CPR.
We are providing an emergency telephone service as normal, we will attend life threatening situations, such as heart attack, stroke or a catastrophic bleed. In a medical emergency call 112 first then call FAST on 868 487 015. 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.
We are very grateful for the enormous support for FAST expressed on social media. It is obvious that the people of Camposol appreciate our volunteers. We hope to be fully functional soon. To give 24/7 cover we need to recruit more people to be trained as responders.
Most responders will always respond in pair’s day or night. We have flexible shifts, 6 hours, 12 hours or 24 to suit the individual
If you have symptoms of the virus you should stay at home and phone 900121212, explain your symptoms and they will advise you on what you should do.
If you have a medical emergency call 112. Ask for an operator to speak in your language if you do not speak Spanish. They will ask a series of questions in order to prioritise the call. If the call is at night, we ask the caller to put outside lights on, this will help the Emergency services to find your location.
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 the other members of the household; 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.
As we are now providing a reduced service, the FAST nurses are back on a Monday morning, give them a wave and any donation is gratefully accepted. Our expenses have not reduced while we have not been active. The two vehicles still have to be taxed and insured. They are serviced regularly and ITV inspections carried out. A lot of the consumables we carry have to be replaced as the dates run out
Our Mental Health phone is manned 24/7. If you are feeling depressed, alone or just want to talk to someone then call 634 308 362 there will be someone there to listen to you and give you advice if you need it.
