— The objective of this study was to identify main factors that influence fire rescue. In focusing on the purpose of this research, a decision-making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) was implemented to establish a network relation map (NRM), which afterward was employed to illustrate the influential network of factors related to fire rescue. The results showed that the water supply allegedly is recognized as a major key which has the most influence on other dimensions. This improvement model is useful in establishing an influential network and a prioritization among dimensions/criteria associated with fire rescue.
