After the tsunami the Thai Government reported 5 395 confirmed deaths, 8 457 injuries and 3 120 missing in Thailand from 44 countries. The Thai authorities estimated that 8 000 are likely to have died. A fantastic job was done by the local rescue workers and police with rescuing as many as possible, and also to get all the dead transported to the different temple areas. It was established DVI (Disaster Victims Identification) centres in Khao Lak, outside Phuket Town and in Krabi. The first couple of weeks the DVI personnel were forced to work outside under the open sky in extremely trying conditions.

It soon became evident that if the Government should be able to identify as many victims as possible, the working conditions had to change dramatically. Normeca suggested at an early stage to build up an Identification Centre based on flat packed containers with air conditioning, water supply and other necessary equipment.

Closed to 5000 victims were stored in more than 100 freezing containers when the operation started, less than 500 was left when the site closed 13 months later.
