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.

17: Callout -Thursday 25 June 2020

We were called to assist East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) with a collapsed male on the main path north of Kinder Reservoir on a sweltering afternoon. Hill parties were despatched to meet up with the EMAS crew who had arrived on scene to treat the casualty.

He was taken on our stretcher along the path and down to the road ambulance at the Filter House. We then returned to our base to clean and decontaminate our vehicle and equipment.

With temperatures approaching 30° our volunteers were relieved it was only by the reservoir and they hadn’t needed to ascend to the top of Kinder Scout.
