Saving lives in wild and remote places

Please Support Us

Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT), 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.

They provided advanced care, but sadly the casualty was pronounced dead at the scene. We were asked to recover the...

8: Standby – Saturday 14 March 2020

The team were put on standby for a couple who were reported overdue from a walk on Kinder. As we were checking car parks (Kinder MRT in Hayfield, Buxton MRT in Edale), the couple were located in Edale. A team callout was not required. A genuine call from a concerned family with good intent. A...
