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.

35: Callout – Sunday 20 September 2020

We were called to assist a walker with severe cramp in both legs on the western edge path of Kinder Scout between Kinder Low trig point and the top of Red Brook. Despite analgesia, fluids, food and his best efforts, he was still unable to walk more than a few paces due to the pain. We therefore carried him by stretcher for 1.5km to our vehicles at Edale Cross, for transporting down to our base in Hayfield.
