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.

6: Callout – Sunday 16 February 2020

Second callout of the weekend. I was called by the Duty Controller with a request to help two girls who were cold, wet and struggling around the back of Kinder Reservoir. We got their location using the PhoneFind tool and a party were despatched to locate and walk them off safely.

They managed to make their way down to Upper House before we arrived at their location, where they met two policemen who took them back to their car. We were therefore able to return to our Land Rovers and return to base.
