Colorado Oklahoma Resource Council Model

The Colorado Oklahoma Resource Council (CORC) model1 was created in 1996-97 to assist and support the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing during the trials in Denver in 1997-98. The CORC model, which has been adapted for other mass fatality trials, addresses numerous unique issues:

  • A large number of victims, which may overwhelm existing resources.
  • A trial that has a change of venue.
  • Multiple closed-circuit television (CCTV) sites across a broad geographic area.
  • Transportation demands.
  • A need for quality services across all sites through careful coordination of resources.
