Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT) has been in existence since 1971, and 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.

34: Callout – Sunday 13 September 2020

The team were called to assist a gentleman with an ankle injury in the Noe Stool area of Kinder. He was one of a party of 5. We were able to locate the casualty party from their flashing lights and from a Sarloc message. After casualty care, including immobilising the ankle in a vacuum splint, we stretchered the casualty to our Landrover waiting at Jacob’s Ladder. Fortunately, the casualty was able to sit up in the vehicle for the drive back to Hayfield. Our second Landrover took the rest of the party down the track to Hayfield. We provided a cup to tea whilst their car was retrieved from Edale and they were able to drive home after a rather long day on Kinder.
