Interoperability Standards

All-Hazards Communications Unit

The objectives of the Oregon COMU Qualification Program are as follows:

  • Establish minimum training and qualification standards for Communications Unit personnel working as part of the COMU or as a single resource assignment consistent with federal guidelines and/or the National Qualification System as appropriate.
  • Guide the development of knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to obtain recognition of qualifications within the state of Oregon through the certification and credentialing process.
  • Define criteria to obtain and maintain both certification, and credentialed status for position-specific roles within the Communication Unit.
  • Retain the foundation of the performance-based qualification system established and implemented through the NQS developed by FEMA and expand the performance-based evaluation process to include Oregon specific qualification requirements.
For more information about the COMU Program, please see the Program documentation.
