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.

26: Callout – Fri 2nd Aug 2019

We continued to contribute to the multi-agency response to the Todrook reservoir emergency. The Kinder MRT water team, along with other MRT water teams were based at New Mills Fire Station and Furness Vale Social Club. We were ready to provide an emergency flood response in the event of the dam wall failing.

In the early hours of Saturday morning the decision was take to withdraw the water teams from these forward operating bases and to stand by from our own bases and homes. We are still able to provide an emergency response from these locations.
