Emergency task cards. These are used to prepare and execute emergency plans. They are a logical
extension of the basic emergency plan. Each individual card lists a separate task, its priority, and the approximate
completion time. The commander ensures these cards are prepared and used. The following are specific about
a. Identify and record each specific task on a separate card. Record the time for completing each task.
Arrange the completed cards in priority order as specified in the emergency plan.
b. In an emergency, personnel report to a predesignated location. There, the COMSEC custodian or
other person issues the tasks in priority order.
c. Each individual carries out his assigned task. He reports back to the officer in charge when his task
has been completed. This way, the COMSEC custodian is aware of which tasks have been completed, are
underway, or need to be initiated. This procedure continues until all tasks are completed.
d. A facility may have multiple emergency plan taskings and responsibilities. Thus, the emergency task
card function may be completed within Individual sections.
Summary. Planning for COMSEC emergencies cannot wait until an emergency is imminent or
underway. Prudent security measures require preparing and testing of plans to protect COMSEC material. These
plans include evacuation, emergency storage, and destruction. As these plans are carried out, care must be taken
to ensure unauthorized access to equipment and material does not occur.
