This report documents research into the time it takes Reserve Component (RC) support units (such as transportation, engineers, military police, or artillery) to mobilize and prepare for deployment. Using data from 606 units called to duty during Operation Desert Shield, the analysis shows that the times depend on the unit's branch, size (weight of equipment), and mode of transportation (air or sea......

For a model in which two urban emergency units cooperate in responding to calls from a region that may have inhomogeneously distributed demands and complicated travel times, the expected response time to calls for service and the workload of each unit are calculated as functions of the boundary that separates the two response areas.The boundary that minimizes mean response time is determined; it m......

The average travel time for emergency units such as fire engines, ambulances, and police patrol cars, which respond to spatially distributed incidents, is not necessarily minimized by always dispatching the units closest to each incident.Methods are described for changing response areas to reduce both average travel time and the imbalance of workload among units.......
