A rescue station is a location where some rescue service is located. However, it is recommended to use a more specific tagging if available, namely amenity=fire_station for a fire department or emergency=ambulance_station for ambulance locations - see below for more examples.

How to map

Add a point to the center of the building rescue station and attach a tag amenity=rescue_station. You can give the name of the tag name=*.


  • building=*mark the actual building rescue station
