KINDER MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAM

 

Saving lives in wild and remote places since 1971

Please Support Us

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.

49: Callout – Thursday 26 November 2020

We were contacted by Glossop Mountain Rescue Team to assist with multiple casualties on Gathering Hill. They had been called to assist a benighted couple with a leg injury, but this had escalated with another group of four people nearby who were unable to continue their walk. We assisted with the deployment of a stretcher but were grateful that HM Coastguard Rescue 936 helicopter was able to assist. Part of the second group were airlifted to Snake Summit, with the initial injured walker being flown to hospital. The others were then walked off the hill to Snake summit.
