In this paper we propose the design of a wearable embedded system1 for wirelessly delimiting an hazardous area during emergency, alerting the rescue operators when entering in it and measuring the consequent exposition time. (The dangerous area is previously identified, e.g., through suitable instrumentation). The suggested approach, which is identically effective in indoor and outdoor environments, significantly extends existing solutions by not requiring any absolute position information for delimiting the hazardous
area or fixed infrastructure as requested instead by GPS and UWB solutions. The proposed low-power system can be easily retrieved after use and ready to be deployed in a new environment.
