Disaster Planning

Funeral directors will play a very important role in the event of a mass-fatality, such as a pandemic flu, a natural disaster or other catastrophic event. Families and communities will count on you to provide the same high level of care and compassion for families during such a challenging time as they do today. Your funeral home and staff should be prepared to serve families and your community during mass-fatality situations.

Within the Related Information section on the right, you'll find additional links to resources that relate specifically to disaster planning, including articles, continuing education, consumer resources, sample legal documents and forms.
