Date & Times
Jun 2, 2020 from 8 AM - 5 PM

This awareness-level course will teach rural and tribal participants the basics of mass fatality response while providing them with opportunities to exchange rural and tribal perceptions and brainstorm for solutions to simulated emergencies. In the course of six modules, delivered over an eight-hour period, participants will learn how to identify critical resources necessary for identified functions, develop strategies for responding to unique challenges of mass fatalities incidents, implement forums for partnerships with key community, regional, state, and federal stakeholders for effective response and community recovery, and identify the components that comprise a comprehensive community-wide mass fatalities incident response plan. Upon completion of this instructor-led course, participants will benefit from an increased awareness of morgue operations and human remains recovery operations, and an enhanced ability to plan for the unique challenges of mass fatality incidents in rural and tribal communities.
