On member ways making up the relation†:

Country-specific information

The Netherlands

There are 25 safety regions (veiligheidsregio's) in the Netherlands. These regions are used as a regional level for e.g. the fire brigade, GGD, ambulances and disaster management. Besides that the police, courts and emergency centers use regions that comprise of one or more safety regions.

The boundaries of Dutch safety regions follow administrative boundaries, so boundary=safety_region isn't used on ways.
