As an access tag

emergency=yes is used[1] to indicate that a given road is accessible to a emergency services, what may be considered as a strong hint that given road is free from physical obstacles. Note that as emergency vehicles are by definition not restricted by legal access - so for example road with highway=service + access=private may be accessible to emergency vehicles if there are no mapped physical obstacles.

For places explicitly designated for emergency access consider emergency=designated.

As a hospital property

emergency=yes is also used[2] to indicate whether a hospital (amenity=hospital or healthcare=hospital) is equipped to deal with emergencies. See also emergency=emergency_ward_entrance.

emergency: as a namespace prefix

The emergency namespace prefix is used to disambiguate multi-function facilities between their primary, and emergency use. This prefix is used in Japan, the Philippines, and Taiwan (where it was first used), for mapping designated emergency shelters that normally serve a different, primary function (e.g. school, community centre, place of worship, etcetera.)

See emergency: page for usage details.
