This course is designed specifically for the emergency management, law enforcement, hospital and medicolegal communities. In the wake of public transportation disasters, the victim accounting process requires a multiagency response. Success depends on the ability of these agencies to engage in a collaborative effort during the planning, operational, and draw-down phases of the response.


This course examines the core principles for managing the transition from first response and life safety operations into the victim accounting process. A combination of lectures and  case study discussions are provided by the course instructors that have led mass-fatality responses inside the United States. Course instructors include NTSB, FEMA, NIJ, Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences, New York City Office of Emergency Management, San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center This training approach provides the participants with a solid framework of understanding while illustrating some of the key challenges that commonly impact communications, coordination, and data quality assurance and control during the management of transportation disasters involving high numbers of casualties,. The course focuses on the need for agencies to understand the roles and responsibilities of the various entities involved in victim accounting operations, specifically within the context of transportation accidents, and it brings these individuals together to participate in a multidisciplinary training environment that emphasizes the common objectives of a transportation mass casualty response.
