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.

20: Callout – Sunday 12 July 2020

Following our very early morning callout (see callout 19) we were contacted at 15:48 with reports of an injured walker on the southern edge path of Kinder Scout. Following a discussion with our casualty it was clear he couldn’t weight bear and would need stretchering off the hill.

Four hill parties were sent to the casualty and his wife via Edale Cross. He was treated and carried down to our Land Rover at the top of Jacob’s Ladder, where they were transferred back down to Hayfield. The couple were then returned to their car in Edale, so they could attend hospital and the team could stand down after a busy day.
