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.

40: CALLOUT – 11 DECEMBER 2021

A group of walkers called in to say they were lost on the top of Kinder Scout. After successfully navigating across the plateau, their route had taken longer than expected, the conditions had closed in and they were having trouble find the route down in to Edale. We despatched two search parties from Edale Cross along with Buxton Mountain Rescue team who covered the possible routes down in to Edale. Finally with the help of a SARCALL PhoneFind location, we were able to meet up with the group and escort them back to our vehicles at Edale Cross.
