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.

44: Callout – Monday 2 November 2020

Just 10 minutes after standing down from assisting the walker on the western edge path (callout 43), we received another call for assistance. A father and daughter were in difficulty on the southern edge path at the top of Crowden Brook. As we still had team members at base we were able to deploy swiftly.

Using the GPS in his phone we knew their location and following a conversation they managed to move to somewhere a little more sheltered to await our arrival. Two hill parties were despatched to assist them, walking them back to our awaiting Land Rovers at Edale Cross. Once driven down to Hayfield, we were able to return them to their car in Edale.
