Abstract [en]

In this work, a model has been developed that can support and evaluate decisions on the location of rescue service resources. The main contributions are the possibilities to model multiple events and multiple resources, and foremost providing a method of quantifying the interaction between events and resources. In the model, it is possible to analyse different ways of organising the fire and rescue service, e.g. comparing the effect of small units in multiple locations with a traditional way of organising, where most resources comes from a single fire station. The model can also suggest advantageous locations for the resources.
