KINDER MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM

 

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.

33: CALLOUT – WEDNESDAY 2 SEPTEMBER 2020

The team were called to assist Buxton Mountain Rescue Team in the search for a pair of missing walkers on Kinder Scout. Buxton team had initially managed to retrieve a location for the missing walkers using one of our phone locator tools which placed them on the southern edges of Kinder. A couple of Buxton search parties were sent out to recover them, however on arrival at the area, the missing walkers were nowhere to be found. As the plateau was in cloud cover with limited visibility and darkness was approaching, the search was scaled up to firstly include search dogs, then Edale team and ourselves.

Just as we were in the process of deploying on the hill, Buxton control managed to receive another call from the pair to say they could see a search party approaching. This turned out to be one of the Buxton parties who warmed up the pair and escorted them off the hill. It transpired that the pair had decided to attempt to make their way off the hill, so weren’t at the location where we first pinged the phone.
