Alkaline hydrolysis or Aquamation was legalized in Washington State in May 2019. This disposition option is environmentally friendly and an alternative to flame-based cremation. Deone Strommer, Founder of First Call Mortuary Services, has been legally providing aquamation in Portland, OR since March 2018. Deone will teach us how the process works and why it's environmentally friendly. He will then review the cost for aquamation and how COVID-19 has affected the availability of this option in our state. The Co-op Funeral Home of People's Memorial in Seattle has been offering aquamation services through a partnership with First Call Mortuary Services until it's available in Washington State.
Registration is required. This presentation will be recorded.
