  • Abstract The aim of this paper is to apply Goal Programming to select a site for a Fire and Emergency Service station in Sfax region in Tunisia. The decision making process involves incommensurable and conflicting objectives including proximity to industrial firms and response time. The concept of satisfaction function is utilized to explicitly introduce the Decision-Maker's preferences in the decision-making process.
