FAST is registered charity delivering 24-hour volunteer English-speaking immediate emergency casualty care to all residents and visitors on the Camposol development of Mazarron. The group’s mission is not to replace the local ambulance service, which due to high demand can have longer than expected response times, but to assist and compliment the ambulance service. People in an emergency situation should always call the 112 emergency number immediately then secondly contact FAST.
The group informs that all responders are qualified with professional awarding bodies and registered with the Murcian Health Authority. They operate two emergency vehicles which are fully equipped with the most up to date emergency equipment including defibrillators.
FAST recently added a mental health first aid emergency telephone service for all of the Region of Murcia. Callers will receive a listening ear and advice on second-level professional care and can be referred if required. All calls and responder call outs are confidential.
Volunteers required: If you currently live in the Camposol area and have time on your hands and would like to put that time to helping others please contact FAST as they are always recruiting for responders and for their support team.
In addition the FAST website contains useful information on general healthcare in the Mazarrón/Cartagena areas.
