Abstract
Our surroundings are currently vulnerable. People can not know when or how to expect nor prepare for a disaster or an accident.

The results of our study have shown a discrepancy between the ways the community organizes their service for people in a crisis situation caused either by a catastrophe or an untimely death. In case of an untimely death, ordinary resources are estimated to be sufficient while in case of a catastrophe, extraordinary resources are required. This difference is also to be found in the law system where the need of help is pointed out for people affected by a catastrophe. (Less)
