As defined by the Incident Command System (ICS), and the National Incident Management System (NIMS), Communications Unit personnel plan and manage the technical and operational aspects of the communications function during an incident or event. To obtain COMU, COML, or COMT status, trainees must complete a Position Task Book (PTB) documenting their ability to perform the functions required of a COMU position. 

The National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (NCSWIC) Planning, Training, and Exercise Committee, in conjunction with the SAFECOM Communications Unit (COMU) Working Group, developed the Communications Unit Personnel Position Task Book Sign-Off Process Template to assist Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (SWIC), SWIC designees, state governance bodies, and regional governance bodies in developing a system for COMU personnel PTB sign-off. This template is intended to shepherd SWICs and/or state governing communications bodies through the basic processes and procedures necessary for establishing a COMU PTB sign-off process until such time that a national program is developed. This document is meant to guide, rather than restrict. Not all items may be applicable to your program. The SAFECOM COMU Working Group is currently working on the development of a national program.
