LATEST NEWS

 

 Thank You

 

Jenny OBrian of Alston ran the Great Cumbrian Run in aid of Penrith Mountain Rescue Team. Jenny's efforts in both training and the run itself paid off and she managed the 13.1 mile half marathon in only 2 hours 13 minutes and 43 seconds, and by doing so managed to raise a whopping £505 pounds for the Team!!

 

Well done, and many thanks, Jenny.

 

 Our Chairman Retires

 

The Team would like to thank John Whittle for all his efforts after being the Team Chairman for 4 years, he stood down at the recent AGM, and Matt Nightingale was voted in.John has also retired from the Team after 10 years of active service and we would like to thank him for all his hard work and his companionship during this time. We wish him all the best in the future.

ABOUT US

 

WE HAVE RESPONDED TO 14 CALLOUTS IN 2014

 

The team operates from a purpose-built base in Penrith. It is a registered charity and one of eleven members of the Lake District Search and Rescue Association (LDSAMRA). In turn the LDSAMRA teams fall under the governing umbrella of Mountain Rescue England & Wales (MREW).The team is entirely funded by donations. All its members are unpaid volunteers, willing to respond any day of the year in any weather. We respond to 40+ callouts a year and are on call 365 days per year, 24 hours per day.

 

The operational members of the team commit to a rigorous programme of training throughout the year, covering casualty care, off-road and ‘blue-light’ driving, radio communications, search management and swift water rescue.

 

PMRT covers the largest geographic area of any of the Lakes District Mountain Rescue Teams. Our area stretches from the Scottish Border in the North to the Northumberland Border in the East, down the North Pennines to High Cup Nick above Dufton in the South, with the North-eastern fells of the Lake District (Haweswater) making up our Western boundary. We often work alongside our neighbouring Mountain Rescue teams, particularly Patterdale and Kirkby Stephen.
