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.

23: Callout – Thursday 1st July 2021

We were called by Derbyshire Police when two people on Mount Famine were concerned for the welfare of a mountain biker, who was seen pushing his bike and waving his arms at them whilst shouting for help. We identified the area as the top of the Edale Track on Kinder Scout. The area was searched but no-one located.

More detailed information led us to believe the mountain biker had headed towards Jacob’s Ladder. We saw no-one from above and our friends in Buxton Mountain Rescue searched from below and towards Edale, but no-one was located. Both teams stood down satisfied the mountain biker must have safely made his way off the hill.
