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.

5: Callout – Saturday 15 February 2020

We were called at 19:54 during Storm Dennis, to assist a couple in difficulty on the southern edge of Kinder Scout. They were well equipped but had made an error of judgement. They thought they were in the Woolpacks area and after getting a GPS fix on them through the SARLOC system, this was confirmed.

In pretty atrocious conditions our hill parties were despatched and the couple were found safe. After warming them up in our shelter, they were walked off to our vehicles at Edale Cross before being driven down to Hayfield for some warm drinks. We then returned them to their car in Edale and finished at 00:15
