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.

Callout 32: Sunday 12 September 2021

We were called at 20:00 by Derbyshire Police to search for two adult walkers who had become lost and benighted on Kinder Plateau. We were able to use Sarcall PhoneFind technology to determine their exact location around Crowden Head. We were able to speak to them on their mobile to determine that they were not injured, though very wet and exhausted.

Two Kinder parties were dispatched to find them and walk them back to Edale Cross, where they met up with our Landrovers, to be driven back down to base.
