While the process of delivering death notifications is similar for a single homicide or a mass violence incident, there are also some unique aspects of mass fatalities that should be considered. This training is an opportunity to learn more about:
-The factors related to delivering mass violence death notifications.
-The dynamics of death notification teams.
-The training needs of death notification teams.
-How to integrate a trauma-informed approach.
Lessons learned from previous incidents consistently underscore that all response and recovery efforts are more effective when:
-Organizational roles are defined prior to the incident.
-Relationships are in place to create a more efficient response and faster recovery.
-There is a planned and comprehensive communications management strategy that focuses on communication among all responders, with victims and survivors, and with the community during the response and recovery phases.
