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.

03: Callout – Wednesday 20 January 2021

After being on standby the previous day, we were called by Derbyshire Fire and Rescue service at 18:20 to help with their flood response during Storm Christoph. We sent our flood response unit of Swift Water Rescue Technicians, raft, water rescue trailer and two team vehicles to Bakewell Fire Station to cover the Ashford-in-the-Water, Bakewell, Rowsley and Darley Dale areas. We were part of a Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation response that also included Buxton MRT, Derby MRT, Edale MRT and Woodhead MRT.

Although there was significant flooding around the rivers and roads, we did not need to go in the water. Team members were out for 12 hours door to door, returning to their homes in time for breakfast.
