In this study, we presented a Maximum Coverage Location (MCL) model for emergency services which are Rescue-15, Islamabad. We addressed this issue under fixed cost and allocation of different services of the emergency facility. The MCL model is calibrated in two Phases. Phase-I model marks the optimal facility sites that provide maximum coverage to all the demand sites under budgetary constraint. Phase-II model solves the allocation problems of the services to these facility sites that have been selected in Phase-I. Illustrative examples are givento show how the proposed model can be used to optimize the locations of emergency facilities of Rescue-15 Islamabad. We used General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) to solve thesemodels.
