Critical facilities provide essential products and services that are necessary to preserve the welfare and quality of life and fulfill important public safety, emergency response, and/or disaster recovery functions.  Critical facilities include: the 911 emergency call center, emergency operations centers, police and fire stations, public works facilities, sewer and water facilities, hospitals and shelters, communication sites; and facilities that, if damaged, could cause serious secondary impacts (i.e., hazardous material facilities). Critical facilities also include those facilities that are vital to the continued delivery of community services or have large vulnerable populations. These facilities may include:  buildings such as the jail, law enforcement center, public services buildings, senior centers, community corrections center, the courthouse, and juvenile services building and other public facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes and schools.

Maps showing critical facilities and locations where vulnerable populations reside are presented below.  The maps are followed by a critical facility list.

Hazard Maps that will be used in the vulnerability analysis for the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan are presented below.
