The report examines the relationship between response time and fatalities in evaluating an Emergency Medical Service System EMSS. A search of the literature revealed that adequate data does not exist to presently develop fatality-response time relationships for evaluating EMS Systems. The paper proposes a data gathering procedure so that statistics can be derived to use in an EMSS simulation. A GASP simulation program is presented which shows how fatality-response time or injury-response time relationships can be used in evaluating an EMSS.
