Mission: NFMC, founded in 1991, grew out of the need to provide mass fatality incident response education and response services. It is a membership based organization comprised of hundreds of volunteer personnel who donate their time and talents to help in educational activities and response operations. NFMC maintains equipment and supplies necessary for establishing and operating a temporary incident morgue site. NFMC has deployed its morgue and many of the personnel needs of local, state and federal authorities six times since the being founded. NFMC and its members provide readiness assistance by conducting various training programs throughout the US. NFMC writes and publishes the "DISASTER MANAGEMENT NEWS" on a quarterly basis for its members.
