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.

19: Callout – Sunday 12 July 2020

We were called at 3.22am following a 999 call to the police by two distressed females camping somewhere on the top of Kinder Scout. Unable to contact them four rescue teams searched their local car parks for their car. We located this at Bowden Bridge giving us the clue they had ascended the western side of the hill.

We despatched two search dogs to cover the main areas around the western and southern edges, as hill parties ascended the hill on the other main routes. Both search dogs located the females tent together near Kinder Low trig point. Following discussions and checking their welfare, all four rescue teams were stood down.
