The Coroners’ Mutual Aid & Mass Fatality Management Planning
Program is an integral component of the California Law
Enforcement Mutual Aid System.
In the event of incidents that result in mass fatalities, the
Coroners’ Mutual Aid System and plan serve as an essential
resource to the impacted local Sheriff-Coroner, Coroner, or
Medical Examiner should mutual aid be requested.
To assure an effective and efficient response, the Law
Enforcement Branch State Coroners’ Mutual Aid Coordinator
coordinates all inter-regional mutual aid and state agency
activity relating to mutual aid under the Coroner Mutual Aid
Plan. The State Coroners’ Mutual Aid Coordinator is the state
point-of-contact for any out-of-state official request for
coroners mutual aid.
