Brecon Mountain Rescue

Brecon Mountain Rescue Team is an emergency service staffed entirely by volunteers and funded by donation. We operate principally in mid Wales, working from the Brecon Beacons National Park north to Plynlimon, from the Welsh borderland westward, through mid Wales, to the Ceredigion coast, though we regularly work throughout south, mid & west Wales & around the English border. Our work is not restricted to mountain and wilderness search and rescue for climbers and hill walkers: our skills are also deployed by the police to search for vulnerable or missing persons in the community where we can employ our specialist medical and rescue techniques.

Our team recently experienced its busiest season in its 47 year history including a walking group lost in mist, the rescue of a walker with head and spinal injuries who had fallen from Lower Clun Gwyn waterfall, an unconscious teenager suffering from hypothermia on summit of Corn Du, a man suffering from a suspected heart attack on a path above Pont ar Daf, and a report of a five-year-old boy missing which turned out to be a false alarm.

We really do appreciate every donation which will go on to support Brecon Mountain Rescue!
