It is widely accepted that emergencies are a part of everyday life and that, as a state and society develop, the sources and forms of emergencies and the loss of human lives increase, accompanied by extensive material damage. Another known fact is that a technologically advanced society is organized in such a way that, for economic and other reasons, the supply with energy sources, food, raw materials and semi-½nished goods, medical supplies, and numerous other goods is regular, which has made the accumulation of large reserves non-standard. In the majority of cases, emergencies cause damage and delays within infrastructure systems and thus disrupt the established practices and methods of supplying the population, the economy and other users who directly depend on the functioning of this system. On the other hand, delays in the regular functioning of infrastructure systems can lead to emergencies. This is why the priority in protection and rescue worldwide is de½ned in such a way as to... include the necessity of protecting critical infrastructure, with the protection of human lives still remaining the top priority. The e¾cient functioning of critical infrastructure during emergencies largely depends on whether the system resources are adequately used since they can help meet security challenges, risks and threats.
