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.

3: Callout – 3 January 2022

Our third callout of the year and only three days into the new year.

We were called to locate a couple of walkers in difficulty near the old Pennine Way route across the Kinder plateau. We despatched two hill parties to locate them near Kinder Gates, warming them up on a cold evening and walking them off via Kinder Downfall and Sandy Heys to our vehicles at Kinder reservoir. After some warming brews we returned them to their vehicle in Edale.
