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.

A gentleman had been walking on Kinder Scout and became unsure of his route back down, so he called for assistance.  We were able to get his precise location using PhoneFind, which meant I could talk him down without needing to call out the team.  Further PhoneFind positions were used to make sure he had found the correct route until he returned to his vehicle.  The development of this kind of technology means we can sometimes guide people down and be sure they are taking the correct route without having to send team members on to the hill.
