I am doing some analysis for our fire rescue department where we are comparing actual response times to fires vs predicted response times.
The actual response time analysis is straight forward as I have the data and have created the charts.
The predicted response time analysis is a little trickier and what I'm a little unsure about. Essentially, we need to determine the driving distance from the closest 3 fire stations to each fire, and then determine the response time from each station to the fire driving at 40mph.
I have network analyst and can assume this is what I'll need to use (arcgis 10.1).
There are roughly 480 fires I need to do this with so I'm looking for a way to do this programatically, if possible.
Is it as easy as getting a total distance in one field and then creating another field that calculates distance x speed?
