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.

29: Callout – Saturday 8 August 2020

We were called at 21:47 following a broken 999 call from two uninjured walkers lost somewhere near the Pennine Way on Kinder Scout. Following an exchange of text messages and then phone calls we were able to get a fix on their location using SARLOC, which obtained GPS coordinates from their phone. We were then able to locate the two lost walkers and safely escort them off the hill to Edale Cross, from where they were driven down to our base in Hayfield and then back to their accommodation in Edale.
