Abstract [en]

Geographical accessibility is fundamental when planning rescue services.At present there are several programs for computing the accessibility of stationaryrescue units. This study suggests a method for evaluating geographic accessibility inscenarios containing also non-stationary units. The method supports the planningprocess by matching the risk of an incident occurring with the rescue unitsÕcapabili-ties and accessibility. The method is implemented in the computer programRescueUnit Planner. The result of the analysis is presented in thematic maps and graphs aslevel of coverage,mean response timeandconcentration. The method and the com-puter program have been evaluated in two case studies: one urban area in southernSweden and one rural area in northern Sweden. The case studies show that that thismethod can be useful in the rescue service planning process.
