Edale Mountain Rescue Team operate in the Peak District national Park and is one of the busiest Mountain Rescue Teams in the UK.... We are a registered charity and survive solely on donations.
To save lives in wild and remote places
Due to the large number of outdoor activities carried out within our area, coupled with the high number of visitors/participants, Edale Mountain Rescue Team is one of the busiest mountain rescue teams in the country. Since the beginning of 2000 team members have been involved in over 900 incidents. These incidents have occurred whilst people have been partaking in nearly every outdoor activity possible on dry land or in the air; walking, climbing, fell running, mountain biking, horse riding, trials biking, hand gliding, paragliding, fixed wing gliding and even fishing. We also assist the police in incidents where our skills can be utilised in more rural locations. These predominantly involve searching for vulnerable people that have gone missing for various reasons and whose disappearance has cause concern. Edale Mountain Rescue Team members were also heavily involved the flood rescue operations in Sheffield during July 2007.
