In r.e.:

    $\begingroup$ The old title reminds me of the case recently in Italy where some geologists were sentenced to prison for failing to predict an earthquake. "Real life and death issue..." $\endgroup$ – GEdgar Nov 8 '12 at 16:00

For now it has been changed to "Optimizing response times of an ambulance corp: short-term versus average".

Out of curiosity: now that the question title is edited, would your original question text be automatically updated to reflect it? If so that will force a never-ending cycle of improvements...

  • $\begingroup$ so, like the Fixed Point of a question title? $\endgroup$ – Joel Spolsky Staff Nov 9 '12 at 1:40
