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.

54: Callout – Tuesday 22 December 2020

We were contacted to rescue an injured walker with a suspected fractured ankle, in the Edale Rocks / Swinesback area of Kinder Scout. The location was confirmed using PhoneFind technology to obtain it from the GPS in her phone. Hill parties were despatched to stretcher the walker down to our vehicles at the top of Jacobs Ladder, from where she was driven down to the ambulance in Hayfield.

We wish her a speedy recovery and also thank the passing walkers who made the call for help and stayed with her until we arrived.
