Two White Papers identify key issues that need to be addressed when considering fatality management during an influenza pandemic. Information focuses primarily on morgue operations during a pandemic. The papers address issues such as how to identify unattended remains; prioritize Medical Examiner/Coroner services; expedite processing of remains; recruit volunteers and vehicles to transport remains; and process death certificates. Recommendations include creating a separate ESF to deal exclusively with mass fatalities during a pandemic and creating memoranda of understanding with pathologists, anthropologists, dentists, and other professionals with similar skill sets. These documents offer valuable information on dealing with excess mortality expected during a pandemic.
