Fatality Management During a Pandemic and Other Emergency Events

Mass fatality events can occur any day and often result from floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, multiple vehicle accidents, fires, droughts, and other natural disasters. Mass fatalities can also occur as a result of human intervention, such as school, mall and church shootings, terrorist attacks, or a pandemic influenza outbreak.

ADPH has completed a series of 11 conferences across the state to bring to the attention of all stakeholder organizations the need to begin now to plan to handle mass fatalities.
