Much has been written over the years about longer emergency medical services (EMS) response times in rural areas as opposed to urban areas. Yet within urban areas, outside of case studies of certain cities, not much has been written about longer EMS response times in newer, fringe suburban or ex-urban areas. Examining first the largest county within each metro area and next the municipalities and unincorporated areas of all of the counties of metropolitan areas, the findings of this exploratory… Expand

Urban sprawl and delayed ambulance arrival in the U.S.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that promotion of community design and development that follows smart-growth principles and regulates urban sprawl may improve EMS performance and reliability. Expand
Do urban sports facilities have unique social costs? An analysis of event-related congestion on police response time
ABSTRACT Sports facilities across the globe are increasingly being sited in the urban core. The existing literature in sports and urban affairs fails to consider that the magnitude of negativeExpand
Benchmarking and measuring the comparative efficiency of emergency medical services in major US cities
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to benchmark and measure the comparative efficiency of emergency medical services (EMS) in major US cities (populations greater than 100,000). In so doing, thisExpand

A mass transit system not only improves passenger mobility, it also affects the level of economic activities (e.g., working and shopping). Thus, changes wrought by mass transit service planning canExpand
Measurement of urban sprawl in the metropolitan areas of Montreal and Quebec over 60 years
Increasing awareness of the negative effects of urban sprawl has made this phenomenon a topic of great debate. However, there still are no agreed methods for measuring this phenomenon. This thesisExpand

One of the principle criticisms of urban sprawl is that it undermines the cost-effective provision of public services. In this paper the authors examine whether or not this is true through anExpand

Urban sprawl as a risk factor in motor vehicle occupant and pedestrian fatalities.
TLDR
Urban sprawl was directly related to traffic fatalities and pedestrian fatalities and subsequent studies should investigate relationships at a finer geographic scale and should strive to improve on the measure of exposure used to adjust pedestrian fatality rates. Expand
