When are they engaged?
The process begins when we are notified by your representative, who may be a family member, a friend, or another associate – anyone you choose. This person should be advised well in advance of your intention to be cryonically suspended.
When the time comes, he or she informs us of your terminal condition and your location.
Please note that you should take precautions so that emergency paramedics can initiate contact if necessay. With wearable evidence for your intention to be cryonically preserved, such as the bracelet and/or wallet card provided by your cryonic storage facility, paramedics can immediately see the appropriate contact details. Also recommended is an ICE smartphone app (In Case of Emergency).
Who is engaged?
We liaise with the service providers and coordinate the activities from this point onwards. Our process involves three services: Standby, Perfusion and Transportation. During this process, there are several key people that we rely on.
Local funeral director. Having already been engaged by you or your representative for the regular funeral requirements, this practitioner also liaises with staff at your hospital or hospice, and then provides premises where our perfusionist can complete his work on your body. This role is performed in your last hours and immediately after your death.
Central funeral director. This practitioner is able to liaise with your funeral director, and has much experience in arranging transport for deceased people, both interstate and overseas. So their staff can easily handle the regulations and logistics with minimal disruptions. Centralising this service with one provider creates a reliable body of knowledge and experience in cryonic transportation.
