Considered emergency=air and emergency=air_rescue, but thought they could possibly (somehow) be interpreted as dealing with emergencies actually in the air? --Fizzie41 (talk) 00:09, 9 January 2023 (UTC)

Multipurpose services

What if the same air unit does all of rescue, firefighting, and policing duties? Add fire_service=* and police=* to it? --- Kovposch (talk) 05:12, 8 January 2023 (UTC)

Hey, give me a chance to finish writing it before you comment, K! :-)
I think it would be a pretty (very?) rare situation, in that Police helicopters don't usually do Rescue work, and while some (particularly US) Fire Departments do, those helicopters usually don't also fight fires. In the case that they do, I think it would probably work better in reverse i.e. add emergency=air_rescue_service + air_rescue_service=search_and_rescue to the existing, primary, police / fire station tagging? The same could also apply to Military Search and Rescue units.
I'll include it though, thanks --Fizzie41 (talk) 23:09, 8 January 2023 (UTC)

Deprecate emergency_service=air

As mentioned, I am also suggesting deprecating the undiscussed emergency_service=air, that currently only has 24 uses.

This tag could be adapted to the purposes outlines in this proposal, but I thought that it would be better to use a new tag in line with the other existing emergency rescue service tags i.e. emergency=* --Fizzie41 (talk) 23:41, 8 January 2023 (UTC)

You don't need to create a page for the deprecated tag, just add it to Deprecated features. Something B (talk) 09:41, 10 January 2023 (UTC)

Thanks! Thought it would be have been best to have something to see & say No, if people searched for that topic? --Fizzie41 (talk) 01:01, 11 January 2023 (UTC)

I think a page for emergency=air_rescue_service will suffice, but the decision is Yours. Something B (talk) 22:26, 11 January 2023 (UTC)

Contacted users of emergency_service=air

Have contacted those users who previously used emergency_service=air to see if they have any comments --Fizzie41 (talk) 05:02, 3 February 2023 (UTC)

Proposal looks good to me, no objections. --Nw520 (talk) 23:51, 3 February 2023 (UTC)
I was contacted an have no further comments, as this is not my main working area. Thank you for improving the tagging-standards. Hadhuey (talk) 10:24, 5 February 2023 (UTC)
I have been contacted, but have never actually used the tag myself. However, I have no objections to the proposal. Thank you for the work. --N9713 (talk) 22:08, 5 February 2023 (UTC)

In addition to the 3 replies here, I have received another 7 similar comments via PM, all supporting the proposal, with no concerns raised --Fizzie41 (talk) 07:08, 10 February 2023 (UTC)
