Abstract

An important effort of academic research has been realized to improve ambulance response time (the time between the receipt of a call at the dispatch center and the arrival of the first emergency response vehicle at the scene). This study recommends the application of Lean Transportation concepts to achieve shorter ambulance response times. The approach considers the reduction of the time required to travel distance in excess waste by placing ambulances in optimal locations through mathematical modeling. In this project this is applied to the Monterrey metropolitan operations of the Mexican Red Cross. Results of the application are provided.
