Two main streams of literature are relevant to the problem of considering server unavailability in emergency response systems. The first is that on the development of analytical models that allow for the calculation of measures related to server availability. The second is that related to location models for emergency service systems that incorporate such measures. Table A-1 summarizes the methods that will be discussed here in terms of the assumptions made about the four areas of the system… CONTINUE READING
