One thing at a time here:
The first objective is to create a storage facility for people that have
been frozen elsewhere and that has already been frozen with whatever
sophistication or lack of such that is available elsewhere.

For pre mortem sign ups, one can - money permitting- always arrange to fly
in the best possible team to wherever the death occured.

Once we have a facility in place here, we could of course start recruiting
volunteers and subcontractors and start training so to be able to provide
still better freezing here too.
An undertaker trained in embalming we can already hire and train to do
simple cryonic suspensions. Hope eventually to find a local medical team
that will do local suspensions.
