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.

25: Callout – Sunday 15th August 2021

The team received a call to say that a lady had become lost on the top of Kinder in poor visibility. She could not work out which way to go and every route she tried ended up with her up to her knees in peat bog. Our Team Leader, who was on controller duty this week, managed to get a location from her phone using PhoneFind technology. However by the time our first section had arrived at the location, she was no longer there and her phone was no longer replying to calls or texts. After some time we managed to get some information from her by text to say that she had been met by a couple of passing walker, who had escorted her to safety.
