The following information is correct at the time of writing on 11th April.

If you have a medical emergency during the lockdown, please call FAST on 968 970 626 or 634 327 904 or 634 307 986.

As the 112 service has limited English speaking operators, in the Camposol, Mazarrón Country Club, Mazarrón and Bolnuevo areas, please call FAST on 634 327 904 or 634 307 986 to reduce the load on the 112 service. A FAST Responder will assess your need and our interpreter will call 112 on your behalf, if necessary.

FAST Responders cannot attend any medical emergency during the lock down.

Your call will be taken by a Responder who will ask a series of questions to establish the problem. If an ambulance is required, our emergency coordinator (interpreter) will make the call to the emergency services. The coordinator will also call you back with more information regarding your emergency.

At this time of international crisis people are coming to the aid of the vulnerable in many ways. We can all help by making a phone call to a friend to ensure they are ok. If you have a friend who may need cheering up; give them a call. If you know someone who is vulnerable; give them a call each morning to make sure they are ok.

Helping others is always rewarding; just ask a FAST Responder.

FAST Responders are all keeping in touch via a video conference call. Each morning they discuss any developments and changes to their procedures.

The FAST committee is also having weekly meetings via video.

Look out for further information on the social media sites around our area.

Stay home, stay safe.
