Title: Location of Two Fire Stations in Five Sub-Metros of the Kumasi Metropolis
Authors: Amo-Asante, Kwadwo
Issue Date: 10-Dec-2012
Abstract: A lot of studies and research have been done on the location of Emergency Medical Centers, hospitals, fire stations and other such essential public facilities since their services have become an essential part of man’s daily life. The services they provide do come in handy to the beneficiaries when the need arises. Several methods have been used to solve these location problems. This thesis uses a new heuristics for placing absolute p-centres on a network which was developed by Damle and Sule (2002) to locate two fire stations in five sub-metros put together as a network of the Kumasi Metropolis of Ghana. The result indicated that the facilities should be sited at Pakoso and Adiebeba with a coverage distance of 14km. The facilities would serve the residents of these sub-metros effectively if they are sited at the places indicated above.
