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.

19: CALLOUT – 11 APRIL 2022

An elderly gentleman had activated an SOS from his phone from the northern edges of Kinder Scout.  Glossop MRT were tasked with responding to the location to investigate.  When they arrived there was no one in the area.  They executed a search of the local area with assistance from the Police fixed wing aircraft, (NPAS).  As the search of the area proved negative, a decision was made to escalate the search to the full “Kinder plan” a pre-plan for a full scale search of the Kinder plateau.  Along with Glossop team, Edale MRT, Buxton MRT, MRSDE Search Dogs and ourselves were called to add to the search.  As our team was heading up the Edale Cross track, the NPAS plane spotted someone matching the description walking down Jacobs Ladder.  He was intercepted by a team from Edale MRT and his identity was confirmed.  After a quick discussion with the gentleman, it appeared he was unaware he had triggered the SOS.
