'There is no doubting that AMRT saves lives.

And if you ever find yourself in that lonely situation of fighting for survival in the mountains or beyond,

know at least that AMRT will be the ones who

will be scouring the hills and canyons

looking for you!

I admire their work and dedication greatly.'

Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team (AMRT) is a registered charity that operates in North West Wales and Snowdonia. We are staffed by approximately 30 volunteers and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The team is funded almost entirely through voluntary contributions. We operate from a modern, purpose built control centre on the outskirts of Porthmadog.

AMRT provides a search and rescue service, not just on the mountains but covering the whole of North West Wales, including urban and rural areas and along the coasts of North Wales, thereby providing a service to the whole of the community.

We work closely with all of the other emergency services, including Police, Ambulance, Fire Brigade, Coast Guard, RNLI, RAF Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance.

On this site you will find general advice on mountain safety, donating, joining the team, links to weather forecasts and webcams.
