The Extreme Energy Events (EEE) Project is a Centro Fermi experiment to study the Extensive Air Showers (EAS) produced by impact of primary cosmic rays on the Earth's atmosphere using a network of MRPCs telescopes installed across Italy. For a comprehensive understanding of detector performance, MRPCs response has been implemented in the GEANT4 simulation tool. Detailed geometry and microscopic behavior parametrization of MRPCs have been included and results have been compared to data. The good agreement of angular and absolute rates proved the good understanding of the detector response. Simulations are a unique tool to take into account and correct for the variety of telescope locations.
