Proposal

In Germany we have emergency access points in the forest that include a number. In case of an emergency you can use this number when reporting an emergency so that the medics know where you are located right now (which is mostly hard to determine if you are in the woods).

"Emergency access point"

Tag

Tags applied to nodes.

Using the tag:

<tag k="highway" v="emergency_access_point">
<tag k="ref" v="<ACCESS_POINT_NUMBER>">

Rendering

Maybe a square with a cross including the number (similar to the real sign)

The real sign is similar to pharmacy. Maybe this is better: Emergency access point.png

  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. -- Iceland has the same system but in a more general manner, any location can request a UID from emergency services. I've seen this in e.g. cabins. --Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 02:45, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
