Mid-term capacity redeployment of Rescue Centers under simultaneous requirements

Abstract : In this paper, we consider the problem of allocation of Emergency Vehicles (EVs) to Rescue Centers (RCs). The objective is to improve the operational response of the Fire and Rescue Services (SDIS) in France. More precisely, we focus on the mid-term management, and on the process of redeployment of EVs in RCs according to the evolution of requirements. At this level of decision, we do not have information on accidents. We only used the available information on the simultaneity of requirements. Based on the Hurwicz criterion, we develop a mathematical model and an iterative algorithm to solve it. The proposed approach takes into account both the uncertainty on the occurrence sequence of accidents, and the attitude towards optimization of the decision maker (DM). An illustration from the DM’s point of view is presented. It shows that this uncertainty significantly impacts the deployment of EVs. Results show that the proposed approach has an efficient resolution time for real size problems.
