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.

27: CALLOUT – FRIDAY 31 JULY 2020

A man walking across Kinder aggravated a previous injury and was having difficulty continuing. A passing walker came to his aid and attempted to help him get down from the top of the hill. After three hours of struggling on one of the hottest days of the year, they had managed to get as far as the top of William Clough, where they decided it would be too difficult to descend and requested our help. Three Kinder parties were dispatched to assist and with the help of some pain relief, the man was stretchered down to a waiting ambulance.  The team would like to thank the passing walker for his efforts in getting the man as far as he did.
