Communications Unit Training
The Communications Unit (COMU) plays a critical support role within the Incident Command System (ICS).  ICS establishes basic principles, practical tools, and a definitive nomenclature and structure for supporting incident-based emergency response.
The Communications Unit Leader (COML) heads the Communications Unit and is responsible for integrating communications and ensuring that operations are supported by communications.  The COML must understand ICS and local response systems to support the efforts of Incident personnel.
