Download Our Free Whitepaper: The Future of Mass Fatality Preparedness
Mopec has now released The Future of Mass Fatality Preparedness whitepaper. This report analyzes the rise of mass fatality events, the COVID-19 pandemic response and the growing need for emergency preparedness plans.
“There are countless lessons that can be learned from recent mass fatality events, said Jay Troger, CEO at Mopec. “We’ve spoken to our customers, examined recent coverage and reviewed industry trends in order to develop this whitepaper and create resource for organizations to use as they plan and prepare for the next crisis.”
The whitepaper includes a list of questions that organizations should ask themselves to assess their level of catastrophe preparedness, as well as a crisis planning outline and supplies checklist. The Mopec team also provides global natural disaster statistics and an in-depth analysis of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Organizations across the country were caught off guard when the COVID-19 pandemic hit earlier this year,” said Dr. Joyce deJong, Mopec Board Member and medical examiner for 14 Michigan counties. “The response revealed a great deal about what agencies and organizations should do when faced with a mass fatality or natural disaster. This is the time for an honest, thoughtful review of preparedness plans so that we may identify gaps in our processes and develop best practices.”
In addition to providing the whitepaper, Mopec’s experienced team of professionals is available to provide customized emergency preparedness, mass fatality response and surge capacity products and services. Fill out the form access the whitepaper and have it emailed to your inbox.

Mopec’s Solutions Can Prevent Morgue Surge Capacity Problems
Inside Two NYC Morgues Overwhelmed With Coronavirus | NY Times
It is painful, real-life experiences like these that Mopec is working to prevent as we provide durable body bags, MERC Body Cooling Systems, and Guardian quick-deploy morgue storage racks across the country.
The toll of coronavirus is something we hear about all the time, but many of us do not necessarily see. A surge can quickly overwhelm hospital morgues and cause situations like Mariel and Devin chronicled in their experience as “Last Responders” helping to take care of the deceased.
“This is truck number one. We try our best to make sure that no bodies go in there. Unfortunately, we are often at a last resort.” Devin shares as he displays a photo of a trailer with no racks and bodies in body bags spread throughout while he describes the lack of refrigerated storage.Source: New York Times
Mariel describes the anxiety and difficulties of thin body bags ripping and leaking along with the physical pain of trying to manually maneuver bodies onto makeshift wooden racks.

Mopec Secures Increase In Body Bag Production To Address Nationwide Shortage
Emergency response organizations, Medical Examiner offices, hospitals, and morgues across the country are quickly depleting stocks of standard and heavy duty body bags. Many have resorted to using thin lightweight or economy bags while increasing to using two or three per decedent to ensure durability and safety. This sudden demand has left the few body bag manufactures and suppliers in the country with the inability to keep up with the demand. Even with adding more employees and multiple shifts, body bag manufacturers are reporting backlogs of three to six months, or longer. Recognizing this need, Mopec began pursuing manufacturers across the continent to assist in the effort.
