Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
After a mass casualty event, communities and families need to find closure. Members of the Victim Information Center (VIC) Team support local authorities and other NDMS teams in the aftermath of a mass casualty event. VIC team members collect ante-mortem data, such as pictures, fingerprints, dental x-rays, and other medical records, to help identify the victims.

VIC members provide technical assistance and consultation on the collection of management of ante-mortem data and related issues. The VIC may be called on to perform a wide range of functions, such as:
