Welcome to Mountain Rescue England and Wales

Mountain rescue team members are on call, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Over the last few years, they'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.

They've searched for and found missing children and vulnerable adults, on and off the hills, whilst administering sympathetic support to their families.

They've searched river banks and swift water, aiding swimmers and kayakers – and a few who clearly never intended to get wet.

And they'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 their skills in first aid and casualty care, technical ropework, water rescue, search management, maintaining their bases, equipment and vehicles – not to mention taking time to maintain their own fitness.

Mountain Rescue. So much more than mountains.
