Established in 2005 FASTAID covered 2 main areas - Birmingham and the Black Country. In 2012 the charity split into ‘FASTAID - Black Country’ and ‘FASTAID - Birmingham’ due to the ever increasing number of Community First Responders (CFR’s) needed to serve a population of over 2 million people.
Our CFR’s are based throughout the Black Country covering
Dudley • Stourbridge • Halesowen • Sandwell • Wolverhampton • Bilston • Walsal • Aldridge
WHAT WE DO
FastAid Black Country work with West Midlands Ambulance Service both in increasing the number of defibrillators in the community and facilitating training in how to use them.
If you wish to install a AED in a local school, sports centre, transport or shopping facility or your local village, then follow these steps.
1. Check http://www.defibfinder.co.uk/ to see if there is a local AED already in your area.
2. Contact us with details of the organisation that will be raising the money for the AED, where you would like the AED to be installed, and what help you would like from the charity.
We work with The British Heart Foundation in the community to deliver FREE Heartstart courses to teach CPR and other emergency life saving skills.
Course are informal and last about two hours covering dealing with an unconscious person, the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, recognising a cardiac arrest and performing CPR, dealing with choking and dealing with serious bleeding.
