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.

7: Callout – Sunday 8 March 2020

We received a call to assist a casualty in the White Hall / Combs Moss area above Buxton whilst Buxton MRT were on another callout. Initial information indicated an unconscious casualty and considerable uncertainty around the location. We were eventually able to speak with the casualty’s friend and determine a better location. The casualty was now conscious but complaining of severe back pain.

We were able to locate the casualty and, along with Buxton MRT who had joined us, treat the casualty and evacuate by Air Ambulance to hospital.
