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.

13: Callout – Thursday 25 March 2021

As we were doing our Covid decontamination from callout 12, a team member reported an injured lady at the main road crossing in Hayfield. The lady had fallen from her bike at the crossing and unfortunately hurt her hip. She was in a lot of pain and shivering with cold. Passers by had already called an ambulance but it had not yet arrived. We were able to send our team doctor and paramedic, who provided reassurance, treatment and pain relief. We put the lady into our warm casualty bag and carried her on the stretcher to our base to wait in a warmer environment. The EMAS ambulance arrived shortly afterwards to continue treatment and take the lady to hospital.
