This booklet can assist local authorities in preparing to manage the increased number of deaths due to a natural disease pandemic. It provides information on when flu deaths should be reported for investigation by the medical examiner system, planning considerations, and protocols for managing mass fatality events (e.g., pronouncement of death, certification of death, filing death certificates, identifying decedents, handling and tracking remains, managing personal effects, and final disposition of remains).
