ABSTRACT
The paper discusses the complexity of disasters, enhancing risk situations and the importance of support from Biosecurity, as in episodes with fatalities, procedures formulated by this field should be adopted in the handling of corpses, particularly when occurring with search of buried bodies. It contextualizes the magnitude of the disaster characterized by rain and its aftermath (landslides, burying), emphasizing the phenomenon of global warming and climate change and its impacts on communities, especially the poorest, valuing the concept analysis of vulnerability caused by urbanization, environmental degradation by improper management of natural resources, environmental pollution, inefficient public policies, emphasizing low investment in infrastructure. It emphasizes the concept of disaster as unpredictable, sudden and violent, phenomenon causing numerous deaths and destruction; and social, health, legal and operational problems when there is high number deaths at the same time or within a short time. And it analyzes the contribution of Biosafety as guiding emergency plans facing disasters, enhancing the biological risk and the measures required for handling corpses.
