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.

31: CALLOUT – SATURDAY 15 AUGUST 2020

Having only just returned home from carrying out COVID decontamination following Callout 30, the team received a call from Greater Manchester Police asking for assistance in searching for a missing person in the Bramhall area of Stockport.  Whilst the Police were carrying out their enquiries, we were asked to search some woodlands in the area.  27 team members turned out to assist with the search including the team member who had only just returned from the helicopter transfer of our previous casualty to Sheffield hospital.  We were also assisted in the search by search dog Abbie and handler Mark from Oldham team.  Unfortunately Abbie received an injury to her eye while searching through undergrowth (https://www.facebook.com/OldhamMRT/posts/10157610823317742).  The team completed the search area at 3:45AM without finding anything.

The missing person was later found outside our search area.
