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.



As an outdoor organisation and a member of our local, national and international communities, we want to play our part in tackling the many issues that threaten our natural world. These include climate change, the use of resources, waste management and single use plastics.

Our Aim

The primary aim of Kinder MRT is to save lives in wild and remote places. This is our core activity and must take precedence over everything else. Given that, we also aim to be sustainable in everything we do.

Sustainability Principles

We are guided by four sustainability principles:

  1. Have sustainability at the heart of everything we do. This means that we ask all executive members, appointed officers, and team members to have sustainability at the heart of their thinking and decision making;
  2. Aim for Net Zero. We will aim to reduce all our CO2 emissions by reducing consumption and by using renewable suppliers;
  3. Sustainable purchasing. As well as performance and cost, we will include sustainability in our purchase decisions. We will seek suppliers with a good sustainability profile; and
  4. Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle. We will look to buy quality products with a long life. We will repair whenever possible and re-purpose old or obsolete equipment.
