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.

22: Callout – Sunday 27th June 2021

We were called at 16:00 to assist a lady with a broken ankle in William Clough on Kinder Scout. We had an accurate location for the casualty, which was was confirmed with our Sarcall PhoneFind system. Our initial response party provided pain relief and splinting of the ankle. Other Kinder parties arrived with the stretcher. The lady was at the bottom of a steep gully, so we requested a coastguard helicopter to winch her out. Unfortunately, none were available due to higher priority rescues. We hauled the casualty on the stretcher out of the gully with the help of a safety rope, carried her up to Mill Hill and then wheel her down the paved path to Monks Road and the waiting ambulance.
