A game theoretic approach to emergency units location problem

The location of the emergency units may have a deep influence on the intervention time, which in its turn may be relevant for a positive solution of an emergency situation. In this paper we analyze a particular location problem with a discontinuous intervention time function. The problem is tackled from different points of view each one resulting in a different game. The paper refers to a toy model and to a real world situation of locating some additional ambulance in the province of Milan.
