FAST2016 are a group of volunteers who live on Camposol, an urbanisation just north of Mazarrón. They provide First Aid and comfort to residents and visitors to Camposol.
As all members live on the urbanisation, they can generally arrive at a medical emergency before the ambulance arrives. They can carry out most First Aid procedures including life-saving defibrillator techniques. All Responders are fully trained and authorised to use defibrillators.
FAST2016 asks that in a medical emergency the emergency services are called first and then call FAST2016 on 968 970 626.
With the better weather on the way, we are getting ready for visitors and training on life-saving techniques for children. We have purchased training manuals specifically for this purpose.
FAST2016 meets every Tuesday morning at the Cultural Centre on Camposol B for training coffee, tea and a chat (lots of chat). If you would like to see what they get up to and maybe join the team, come along between 10am and 12pm - they are a very friendly bunch. If you cannot make Tuesday, they are outside TJ Electricals every Friday, selling draw tickets to be drawn at the Spring Fayre at Mariano's, Camposol A on 27th May. The bookstall is open on the second and last Friday each month outside TJ Electricals where you can ask for information regarding FAST2016
FAST2016 is funded solely by fund raising and donations. The support we get from the residents, visitors and the local businesses is quite amazing.
Dorothy has been busy coercing local businesses to donate prizes for the Grand Draw on 27th May and we would like to thank them for their generosity.
We have a team of supporters who are always looking for ways to raise funds. Recently there has been a Quiz Night at the Golf Club, a donation was presented by Betty (Secretary of Camposol Golf Society) and Lloyd on Tuesday. The Friends of FAST2016 from Trevi's Bar also made a welcome donation.
A Darts Night has been arranged in support of FAST2016 on 3rd June at Alley Palais, Camposol B and of course the now famous FAST Nurses.
The FAST Nurses can be seen showing a leg on a Monday morning on the main road near Camposol B. When passing, please give them a wave and some loose change if you have any. They will always give you a wave and a smile and you will be helping us to help you. Looks like we had a theatre technician collecting recently!
