FAST is still looking at purchasing defibrillators for Camposol, these may save a life of someone suffering a heart problem. At this time the initial request to the council has come to a standstill due to issues including training, maintenance and ownership, which may not be in the interests of FAST or the community. Further negotiations will be pursued with the Mayor and the President of FAST Barry Hamilton on his return to Camposol.
