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.

15: CALLOUT – 5 MARCH 2022

We were contacted by the duty controller to attend a gentleman walking on the top of Kinder Scout who had suffered a medical incident.  He had made it as far as Edale Rocks, but was now unable to continue his walk.  Once we assessed his condition, we quickly realised he was in severe pain and rapidly getting worse.  Due to the severity of the situation we requested support from the Air Ambulance who were quickly on scene to evacuate him to hospital for further investigations.

We would like to thank the two ladies who kindly helped us move some of our equipment down to the helicopter landing site, while we carried the gentleman on the stretcher.
