Oldham Mountain Rescue Team
Oldham Mountain Rescue Team is a voluntary organisation whose objective is “to save life and alleviate distress, primarily in upland and mountain areas” without cost or obligation.
Oldham Mountain Rescue Team was formed in 1964 and is just one of around 53 volunteer mountain and cave rescue teams providing a search and rescue service prepared to help people in difficulties in the wild and remote places of England and Wales. There are 24 teams in Scotland and 3 in Northern Ireland.
In addition to mountain rescue and search activities, the team is available as a back up for the ambulance and fire services at busy times, during severe weather, major incident or where our specialist skills are needed.
Our team of 50+ volunteers provide a professional rescue service 24hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are funded almost entirely by generous public donation.
