Mass Fatality Working Group
In an effort to better serve funeral directors and ensure they are prepared in the case of a mass fatality event, NFDA convened a mass fatality working group to create a funeral specific mass fatality template. The working group researched and reviewed several state mass fatality plans and created a funeral specific mass fatality plan template for State Associations to utilize. This template was unveiled at the leadership Conference in Florida last week.
“Death Care Professionals Mass Fatality Plan” template. This template serves as a general best-practice guideline to aid states in developing a specific death care “plug-in” to state mass fatality plans mandated by the federal government.
“Ebola Final Disposition Protocol” template adapted from the Georgia Funeral Directors Association. This working protocol identifies current best practices as outlined by Georgia funeral service professionals and GFDA staff working in conjunction with various state and federal agencies.
