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.

2: Callout – 1 January 2022

Our second call of the day was more traditional than our first. A group of five fit young men had gone for a walk around the Southern Edge of Kinder. On the way back, one gentleman’s legs completely seized up and he was unable to walk any further. His friends carried him part of the way back before admitting defeat and calling Mountain Rescue.

We had a location from Sarcall PhoneFind putting them towards the top of Jacob’s Ladder. Our first party arrived on scene to assess and treat the casualty. The second party arrived with the stretcher and also the team doctor. After further assessment, we were able to wheel the casualty down Jacob’s Ladder on our stretcher. We met our vehicles on the level track at the bottom. Our vehicles transported the casualty and his friends back to their cars in Edale.
