Emergency (112) health service are vitally important for people. The most important performance indicator of 112 ambulance call system is intervention period of time to the case. It is natural that the duration is closely related to the location of 112 stations. As a result it can be said the shorter duration of intervention to the case is the higher quality of service under given the satisfactory health service assumption. In this study, it is proposed a set covering model to locate the stations optimally in order to minimize the duration of interventions of 112 stations in Selçuklu, Konya. The existent locations of stations are marked on the target area and added new candidate points then calculated the distances between points in time for the formulation of set covering model. The model ran on the GAMS software. The possible improvements are recommended with respect to results.
