Detail

Through ‘Guidance on dealing with fatalities in emergencies’ we aim to inform and guide those with key roles to play in responding to and planning for mass fatality incidents.

Our aim is for all responders to have arrangements in place to respond to fatalities resulting from a major or catastrophic incident. We believe this can be achieved through the enhancement of existing plans, processes and infrastructure so that capabilities are established that will allow responders to cope with dealing with fatalities in emergencies should they occur at a local, regional or national level.
