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.

26: Callout – Monday 30 August 2021

We were called at 09:15 to assist a 27 year old male who had an ankle injury at Mermaids Pool. Our first party treated the gentleman, with other parties bringing in the heavy equipment. We evacuated the casualty by stretcher, which involved sledging, carrying and using our wheel, depending on the terrain. We arrived at the team vehicles at the top of Kinder Reservoir and were able to drive the casualty off road to the waiting EMAS ambulance at Upper House. Thank you to Upper House for allowing us access, which made the evacuation significantly easier.
