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.

42: Callout – 27 December 2021

We were called to assist a lady who had injured her ankle and was unable to walk. Passers by had stopped to assist and phone 999. They provided a What3Words location, which we confirmed using Sarcall PhoneFind. She was on the Southern Edge path of Kinder Scout, between the large cairn to Edale Rocks and Noe Stool. We were able to send the team doctor in the first response party, who treated her by splinting the ankle and providing pain relief. We were able to warm the casualty in our large sleeping bag and then evacuate her by stretcher to the waiting Landrover at Edale Cross. She was able to sit on the back seat for a bumpy off road trip back to base.

Back at base, the team doctor was able to reassess the casualty, before we drove her to their car in Edale. Her friend then drove her to hospital.
