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.

47: Callout – Sunday 8 November 2020

In a continuation to one of our busiest weeks, we were contacted by the duty controller to assist an ambulance crew with an injured mountain biker on the off-road track below Mount Famine.

As the report suggested that the casualty was suffering from head and leg injuries, we responded urgently.

Just as we were in the process of deploying our first response party we were contacted to advise that the casualty was in fact able to make their way down to the ambulance and our assistance was no longer required.
