Tag for an  emergency telephone. Some places, usually train stations, university sites and highways, have outdoor phones where you press a single button to have a direct line with somewhere such as the security office or police. When you press the button, a light might also flash to alert people close by that there is trouble.

How to map

Tag a node at the appropriate location and add emergency=phone.
