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.

33: Callout – Saturday 18th September 2021


We were called at 16:15 to an unconscious casualty on Jacob’s Ladder. Initially there was some ambiguity about the exact location, so Buxton and Edale MRT were also called to approach from the Edale side. We dispatched a fast response party in our landrover to the top of Jacob’s Ladder via Edale Cross. As the party disembarked and began the walk down Jacob’s Ladder, we were informed that Helimed 54 had become available and was able to land near the casualty. The casualty recovered sufficiently to walk down with the Helimed crew to the waiting Buxton & Edale Teams.
