Proposal

Provide a way to locate rescue equipment commonly found on beaches and in harbours for example. This is often life rings, ropes, ladders and hooks for rescuing people from water, but it could be other sorts of rescue equipment.

Rationale

This is important information, especially on detailed maps. The ability to locate the equipment saves lifes!

Examples

In Denmark, there is rescue equipment in most marinas, as well as on most popular beaches.

Tagging

emergency=rescue_equipment

Possible addition: rescue_equipment=[type of equipment]

types could be lifering (see also amenity=life_ring), throwbag, ladder, hook, heartstarter, etc., or a semicolon seperated list.

Applies to
