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.

02: Callout – Monday 18 January 2021

We were called to respond alongside other agencies to rescue a lady who was injured and in the river near the campsite in Hayfield. We worked with Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service to get the lady safely out of the water using our rescue stretcher. She was then assessed by crews from East Midlands Ambulance Service and the air ambulance, before we carried her up to Kinder Road to the waiting ambulance.

We wish the lady and her husband well and hope she makes a speedy recovery. Thank you also to local residents who were unable to use Kinder Road whilst this rescue was carried out.
