Saving lives in wild and remote places

Please Support Us

Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT), is one of seven mountain rescue teams that operate within the Peak District National Park, as part of the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation (PDMRO).

Our 50 members operate on an purely voluntary basis and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist members of the public on the hill or in urban search and rescue situations.

We are almost exclusively funded by public donations, and all proceeds from fund raising go towards equipment and resources used on our call outs.

2: Callout – Friday 18th January 2019

We were called to assist a lone walker who had become lost on Kinder. Heavy snowfall and darkness meant that he was becoming very cold very quickly. Fortunately we were able to establish his exact location from his mobile phone GPS using Sarcall PhoneFind. Two parties were dispatched to his location. We were able to warm him in our cas tent, then walk him to our Landrover at Moorgate and drive him back to safety at our base in Hayfield.
