Abstract

A mass disaster is a catastrophic event resulting in a huge loss of life stocks and structural destruction. It may be due to natural causes or man-made. It demands an urgent response from the people, society, and the government. The management of dead bodies under such circumstances is very crucial for speedy identification and early disposal. It involves a series of activities beginning with the search, in situ identification of the body, and its transfer to the facility that serves as a mortuary. It also encompasses delivery of the body to family members, and assistance from the State for the final disposal of the body, in accordance with the wishes of the family and the religious and cultural norms of the community.
