Buxton Mountain Rescue Team

Buxton Mountain Rescue Team (BMRT) is one of 49 voluntary Mountain Rescue Teams in England and Wales.

The team was first established in 1964 following ‘The Four Inns tragedy’, which claimed the lives of three young rover scouts while they were taking part in a walking event. While the team has evolved in many ways since 1964, the team’s charitable goal has always remained the same ‘Saving Lives in Wild and Remote Places’.

Today the team has around 60 highly trained volunteers, four emergency response vehicles, two bases and attends around 100 incidents a year. In 2017 the team introduced drone technology as part of our response to search and rescue incidents. We have found many uses for drones, from missing person searches and monitoring live incidents to raising awareness of the team's broader work in the media.
