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.

51: Callout – Sunday 29 November 2020

We were contacted for our second callout of the day, with a couple lost on the southern edge of Kinder Scout. Their location was pinpointed to Crowden Tower using PhoneFind technology and the GPS in their phone. Two hill parties were despatched to their location to assist them off the hill.

It had been a damp and misty/foggy day, with both casualties mildly hypothermic when we reached them. After some warming they were safely escorted off the hill to our warm vehicle at the top of Jacob’s Ladder. We drove them down to Hayfield and then back to Edale from where they had started their walk.
