Cryonics Leaders Collaborate to Improve SST
A critical component for successful Standby, Stabilization, and Transport (SST) is finding a cooperative funeral home to assist with transportation of cryonics patients. Cooperation from funeral homes is imperative for timely transport due to the regulations surrounding transportation of human remains across state lines.
Many funeral homes have demonstrated a willingness to advance the mission of cryonics and, historically, each cryonic organization involved with SST maintained their own list of funeral homes. A master list of funeral homes willing to work with the four leading cryonics companies has never been aggregated and shared across organizations, until now. The leadership teams from Alcor Life Extension Foundation, Cryonics Institute, International Cryomedicine Experts, and Suspended Animation have agreed to share each other’s lists of funeral homes, resulting in the creation of the most comprehensive master list in the industry.
Funeral homes who have worked with one of the four leading cryonic organizations in the past have recently been added to the Master Funeral Home List. Additionally, all four leading cryonic organizations have committed to keeping this list as up to date as possible. Alcor is honored to collaborate with other leaders in the cryonics industry to advance the field of cryonics.
If you know of a local funeral home that you believe may be cooperative during SST, please let us know.
