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.

16: Callout – Saturday 20 June 2020

We were contacted late on Saturday evening with a group of walkers who had left Edale in the afternoon and were now lost and benighted on Kinder Scout. We were able to locate them via their mobile phone to Kinder Low trig point. Hill parties were despatched to Kinder Low to help walk them off the hill.

Before we were able to reach them they were met by other walkers, who offered to walk them down to Jacobs Ladder. Our hill parties therefore changed plans and hoped to meet them at the top of Jacobs Ladder. The group of walkers got there just ahead of us and were happy to descend. We therefore sent a vehicle around to meet them at the bottom.

Once we had met up with them and checked everyone was ok, we helped to return them to their car in Edale and all ended well. We stood down and team members returned home to bed.
