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.

05: Callout – Friday 19th February 2021

We were called out by Derbyshire Police to assist with an incident on the southern edge of Kinder Scout. Buxton Mountain Rescue Team were asked to assist.

A family walking on Kinder Scout had seen a person they became concerned about, and with darkness approaching and the weather worsening, they called for help. The person was assisted off the hill.

We would like to thank the family for staying on the hill and assisting the two mountain rescue teams, which made the callout shorter than it could otherwise have been.
