As our society has become more mobile the long-distance transportation of human remains has become more common. To date, we are the only funeral home in Kentucky that is certified by the TSA as a certified cargo screening facility. Currently, ten of our staff members are trained as screeners.  TSA Cargo Screening is a program that was implemented by the Federal Government’s Department of Homeland Security in August 2011 to help ensure safety in the shipment of human remains via airline. J.C. Kirby & Son is well versed in both domestic and international shipping of remains.
