Saving lives in wild and remote places since 1971

Please Support Us

Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT) has been in existence since 1971, and 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.

Happy Birthday KMRT – 50 years young this year!

2: Callout – 1 January 2022

Our second call of the day was more traditional than our first. A group of five fit young men had gone for a walk around the Southern Edge of Kinder. On the way back, one gentleman’s legs completely seized up and he was unable to walk any further. His friends carried him part of the...

1: Callout – 1 January 2022

In an interesting start to the New Year, we were called by East Midlands Ambulance Service to assist a casualty injured by an Alpaca in a field in Whaley Bridge. Helimed and Land Crew were already on scene but needed some help to evacuate the casualty. In the event, they were able to do this...

43: Callout – 29 December 2021

We received a call for help from a three generation family (one child, two parents and two grandparents), plus a dog. They had walked up the Edale Cross track from Bowden Bridge, returning via Kinder Low End. They had set off in the morning, allowing plenty of time. Unfortunately, they were very much slower than...
