      The following message is designed for wide dissemination among health, rescue, and mortuary workers, and all others who may come in contact with human remains in the New York City region.

      Mass fatality management may evoke strong emotions by responders and other medical personnel. Inaccurate information may promote rumors about disease outbreaks. It is important to remember that human remains from explosions and building collapses do not pose a risk of disease epidemics. However, responders should use standard precautions when handling human remains. Your priority is to maintain the dignity of the deceased and respect family wishes as w ell as religious and social customs.
