Are you new to Camposol?

Do you know what FAST is and what FAST Responders do?

It is apparent from talking to members of the public that we have some way to go before we can all say “Yes” to the latter two questions.  

FAST is Camposol’s First Aid Support Team. The team was set up over ten years ago when finding the location of properties on Camposol was a major problem for the emergency services since many of the roads were unmarked and un-mapped.  Whilst this has changed significantly and our ambulances arrive (in the vast majority of cases) in good time, the period between the emergency call being made and ambulance arriving is now recognised as a potentially critical period. FAST exists to bridge that gap. 

All FAST Responders are qualified in first aid and certified by the European Resuscitation Council, EMS and Murcia Health and can administer cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use an automatic defibrillator. They are also trained to recognise and assist in other lifesaving procedures such as stemming catastrophic bleeds and maintenance of an effective airway. Whilst we are not able to diagnose, we can offer reassurance and advice at a time when even the calmest person is reduced to panic.

To access FAST services you merely need to call us on 868 487 015 after you have called 112 (the emergency number in Spain).  FAST services are completely free of charge and are available for everyone on Camposol regardless of language, country of origin, race, gender etc.  The only current restriction we have on our service is that it can only be offered within the Camposol/El Saladillo area – you may just be visiting or shopping in the area. We are NOT just available for British people or those who speak English – we do have several non-British Responders who speak German, Dutch, Flemish, French, Spanish and Swedish. We would love to increase the number of non-British Responders (as well as recruiting additional Brits) to reflect the changing population within Camposol following Brexit.  If you are interested in joining FAST as a Responder, please drop us an email at for further information.

FAST is a unique service in Spain and as such receives no government funding – we are funded entirely by donations and fund raising events organised by our fund raising team or by local businesses.  We have a comprehensive programme of day trips and evening/afternoon social events planned throughout the year.  Tickets can be reserved online and paid for on Fridays 10.30am-12.30pm at the FAST desk outside The Diner, Camposol B.  Details are available on our Facebook page FAST Fun Team – Camposol.

Tickets for our first entertainment event – an evening of refined entertainment by Bazz Norton and Moya Ruskin on Friday 26th May at Trevi Bar, Camposol B are now available at 20€ pp (including food).  This is your opportunity to dress up and experience this class act from the West End of London. Book your table quickly as seats are limited.  Come and join us!
