26th Annual John R. Teggatz Forensic Science Seminar
Further teachings are necessary in the field of transportation related fatalities; particularly mass fatalities involving single airplane/train accidents. Due to the unique and somewhat isolated nature of these events, death investigators need additional didactic teaching from experienced frontline responders to better handle an emergency in its own jurisdiction. This course will enhance the knowledge, competence, and performance of each death investigator through the sharing of experiences from other death investigators involved in similar situations. Currently, death investigators have limited knowledge and experience regarding investigating unusual transportation-related deaths. As these situations are unpredictable in nature and need immediate attention, this course will provide the knowledge tools for investigators to respond to and adequately perform the duties necessary in these types of situations.
