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.

20 – Callout Sat 12th June 2021

We were called at 19:30 to assist a walker suffering chest pain at the top of Ashop Head on the Kinder Plateau. We dispatched a fast response party and then a second, back-up party. Fortunately, Helimed were able to attend and air lifted the casualty direct to hospital before we arrived on scene. Our concern switched to the well being of the rest of the party, who had already started walking off the hill. We were able to meet them on their decent and escort them to their car.
