Mountain rescue team members are on call, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Over the last few years, we’ve recovered climbers from precipitous crags, reunited lost walkers with their pals and ensured injured and sick casualties have been treated and transported into vital hospital care.
We’ve searched for and found missing children and vulnerable adults, on and off the hills, whilst administering sympathetic support to their families.
We’ve searched river banks and swift water, aiding swimmers and kayakers – and a few who clearly never intended to get wet.
And we’ve rescued a frankly stunning number of dogs, cows, sheep and any number of other animals, from all manner of inaccessible places.
All this whilst continuing to practise and hone our skills in first aid and casualty care, technical ropework, water rescue, search management, maintaining our bases, equipment and vehicles – not to mention taking time to maintain our own fitness.
Mountain Rescue. So much more than mountains.

“When filming for Best Walks with A View, Julia walks into a training session with the Edale Mountain Rescue Team and Buzz, the rescue dog. The Edale Mountain Rescue is one of the busiest teams in the UK and these exercises are lifesaving.”
