Critical facilities


Critical facilities are the fundamental physical structures, technical facilities, and systems that are socially, economically, or operationally necessary to a society’s or community’s functioning, both in normal circumstances and in the event of an emergency.

Critical facilities are components of a society’s infrastructure that support important services. Transportation networks, energy, air and seaports, water, and communications systems, hospitals and health clinics, and fire, police, and public administration service centers are among them.
