This paper mainly deals with the design of an Optimization Routing model for Emergency Medical Service System (EMSS) in Chennai. The effectiveness of Emergency Medical Service System (EMSS) plays a vital role towards society protection. The major idea of this article is to examine the real time flexible dispatching strategy so that crucial response time can be saved for EMSS. An optimization routing model is designed for developing flexible dispatching strategies with the help of duration information. This mathematical model and the is expressed as an IPP technique in which diminished path is assigned. Based on the numerical calculations and graphical representation it reveals to the fact that the different parameters are being analyzed such as duration prediction, incident/vehicles tracking, and consign Optimization and it is validated for road networks.
