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.

40: Callout – Sunday 18 October 2020

We were contacted to assist with a lost solo walker on Kinder Scout, who had become disorientated in the low cloud and boggy ground. We located her via her mobile phone to be near Nether Red Brook on the northern edge. I was able to talk her to the northern edge path, from where she was content to continue walking. The team were stood down. Keeping in touch with her, she let us know once she was safely back at the car park in the afternoon.
