This publication describes a method for tracking and locating individuals within a facility and displaying their location on a suitable display console at a main control location. The display preferably consists of either a numerical display in which the user ID and location ID are displayed with a desk console or on a microprosser controlled CRT console backed by operational and graphical software. This system provides for reception of emergency signals, such as a MAN DOWN alert on the tracked individual. In addition to displaying the Mao Down may be displayed as alert status, an audible alarm can be included.
