Radio users have the ability to establish emer- gency alarms and calls within a communication sys- tem. Dispatch operators can handle these emergen- cies through their console positions. A console position typically monitors several radio channels/ talkgroups, and typically sounds an audible alarm tone if an emergency alarm is received on any ofthe channels/talkgroups being monitored. It is possible for more than one emergency alarm to be pending on any specific channel/talkgroup, and a differentia- tion between these multiple emergencies should be displayed to the dispatch operator.
