Abstract

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) dispatchers are given the stressful task to redeploy EMS vehicles to maintain adequate coverage of a city. Most city dispatchers perform this task by looking at a physical or computer map and forming a decision based on their experience and intuition. This can result in inefficient redeployment of vehicles costing the city wasted resources (e.g. gas. vehicle maintenance) and manpower. The purpose of this research project is to create a tool to assist dispatchers in redeploying vehicles in a quick and efficient manner through algorithm analysis of total system state. An integrated software application was created to quickly provide the dispatcher with a recommendation, and in conjunction with their experience, a final redeployment decision would be made.
