Team Information


Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team is one of the many mountain rescue teams that exist in the upland areas of the UK.

The Team is made up of around 50 men and women, from all walks of life who are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week to go to the help of people missing or injured on the North Yorks Moors in the North East of England.

In the Team at present we have salesmen and students, engineers and electricians, doctors and policemen, teachers and retired people to name but a few. All have a background in the outdoors whether as walkers, mountaineers or climbers and all dedicate a lot of their time into their mountain rescue training. None of the Team is paid for their mountain rescue activities.

In order to be prepared for the wide range of incidents that the rescue team is called to deal with during a normal year its members train regularly and must attend a high percentage of the training sessions in order to keep familiar with the complicated equipment that we carry and to learn the latest search and rescue techniques.
