Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team is the volunteer search and rescue organisation for a large area of south-east Cumbria. The team attends a wide range of incidents, not just in the hills but also in the community. We also assist other teams if needed. Mountain Rescue is on call 24 hours a day to help you enjoy the outdoors. Stay safe in the hills by following these simple guidelines from the AdventureSmart website.

If you need Mountain Rescue call 999 and ask for the Police, then Mountain Rescue. Be ready to give your location as accurately as possible, the nature of the incident, the number of people in your group and any mobile phone numbers you have.
