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.

41: Callout – 18 December 2021

We were called to assist a gentleman who had injured his ankle and was unable to walk. His location from his ‘What 3 Words’ was on the Edge path of Kinder Scout, between Sandy Heys and Kinder Downfall. A fast response party was able to locate and treat the casualty. Unfortunately, weather conditions prevented a helicopter evacuation. With the assistance of Glossop Mountain Rescue Team, we completed a 2 hour stretcher evacuation to Monks Road via Mill Hill, where we handed over to the ambulance service.
