For areas which are hard to access, like woods, some countries offer a network of emergency access points. In case of an emergency you can call the emergency telephone number of the country and report the number signposted on one of those access points. According to the number you have given, the operator knows your exact location without the need of a description of yours.

Some of these signs also offer a special phone number which should be called instead of the country's emergency number.

How to map

Tags applied to nodes.

Using the tags highway=emergency_access_point and ref=* with the reference number on the sign.

Additional tags if given / known are emergency_telephone_code=* with the phone number on the sign, operator=* with the operator, and name=* with the name of the sign.
