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.

32: Callout – Friday 21 August 2020

We were contacted by the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation Duty Controller at 4pm with reports of a group of walkers lost in the low cloud on Kinder Scout. Details were sketchy but indications were they were somewhere near the western edge.

Eventually we managed to locate them using our PhoneFind technology, just south of Kinder Downfall. The cloud had now lifted, so the group headed south on the relocated edge path and we despatched two of our hill parties to meet them. They were warmed and checked out, then walked back to our vehicles at Edale Cross for transportation back to Hayfield.
