Understanding Critical Infrastructures
You are the emergency manager in a city with a population of 250,000 in the northeastern United States. The fire chief asked you to draft a brief research paper for the new fire service recruits explaining critical infrastructure. He wants you to focus specifically on the key assets that the fire service recruits may deal with during their fire service careers.
Prepare a research paper of 750-1,000 words that address the following:
1. Which of the 18 critical infrastructure and key resource (CIKR) sectors are of the most concern to the fire service?
2. For each of the sectors of most concern to the fire service, identify 3 associated assets, and describe each asset.
3. Out of all the assets identified, which 3 are fire service personnel most likely to encounter during the course of their career? Explain.
