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.

12: Callout – Thursday 25 March 2021

We were called to assist the East Midlands Ambulance Service with an injured casualty on Kinder. The gentleman had fallen at the bottom of William Clough and sustained a serious arm injury. There was no phone signal, so a passing walker went a significant distance to obtain a signal and phone for help. We believe two fell runners did the same. The team deployed with one of our team paramedics in our fast response party. We provided treatment (splinting and pain relief) and evacuated the casualty on our stretcher to the Filter House. We transferred the casualty to the waiting EMAS ambulance.
