Welcome to Mountain Rescue England and Wales
On call 24/7: 365 days of the year: Whatever the weather
There are 49 volunteer mountain rescue teams and eight regional bodies in England and Wales, across nine geographical areas, and we are here to help them deliver the best possible care to their casualties. We can’t do that without your support. Thanks to you, we can provide and maintain the highest standards in casualty care, technical rope rescue and swiftwater rescue. And we can provide key items of kit to teams and help keep their vehicles on the road. And thanks to your legacies, we can plan for the future to ensure this valuable community service remains voluntary and free to the casualty. To find out more…
