KINDER MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM

 

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.

FAQs

WHAT MOUNTAINEERING EXPERIENCE AM I EXPECTED TO HAVE TO JOIN THE HILL TEAM?

We accept team members with varying levels of mountaineering experience. Do not feel that you have to be an expert rock climber or mountaineer, experience of hill walking will generally be sufficient. You are expected to be able to navigate using a map and compass. This is not taught as part of basic training.

HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE TO JOIN THE HILL TEAM?

If you can walk up to 8 hours over hilly terrain, carrying a 15kg pack, and navigate at the same time, then you are physically fit enough to join the hill team.

HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE FOR THE SUPPORT TEAM?

All we ask is that you are reasonably active and notify us of any existing medical conditions. You will not be asked to do anything outside your capabilities. Support team members are expected to have significant hill walking experience.

DO I GET PAID? WHAT WILL IT COST ME?

It is entirely voluntary and unpaid work. You can expect to spend your own money on providing your personal kit, which is generally exposed to more wear and tear than average.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES?

We strongly encourage applications from all members of the community.
