Training and exercising is essential to preparedness and, as such, is part of the normal business of responder organisations.
Mass fatalities emergencies, particularly a pandemic, will require a very wide range of responses across several agencies, encompassing many work streams and contributors. Almost all training and exercising could therefore be said to contribute to resilience in this area. However it is recommended that particular attention is given to the following areas when training and exercising to promote resilience in mass fatalities aspects of these emergencies:
- mortuary business continuity management
- RRP level coordination of capacity during a pandemic response.
