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.

Hill & Water training Sunday 18 April 2021

With COVID19 safety procedures still in force, Sunday 18 April was an opportunity for the majority of the team to participate in two separate ‘core skill’ training sessions:

The ‘water’ team (consisting of Swiftwater & Flood Rescue Technicians and Water 1st Responders) deployed to a remote rendezvous location on the River Goyt to practice working safely in and around water. This also allowed the recently fitted-out water trailer to be tested in a deployment scenario.

The training included wading, throw line practice and a number of techniques for using hi-line and the sled rescue raft. The temperature was a bit warmer than the previous occasion the team were in the water.

The other group of ‘Hill’ team members also attended a remote rendezvous to a different location and carried out a typical mountain rescue scenario to locate, treat and evacuate a casualty suffering a number of trauma injuries. The exercise ended in a stretcher carry back to the road head and waiting Land Rovers.
