This makes no sense to me at all, after emergency=defibrillator got approved in the proposal and we are not using emergency=aed this seems very inconsistent.

In my opinion it should obviously be defibrillator:location=

+1, we should be consistent —M!dgard [ talk | projects | current proposal ] 20:58, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Coded access

The public AEDs in my area require you call 999 to get a code to access them. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to tag these as such? Maybe access=permissive? --Dee Earley (talk) 09:39, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

I took a photo of one on Tuesday evening. Perhaps phone=999 and ref=AD60 (in the case of the one I looked at) might be sufficient? --EdLoach (talk) 11:31, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
That's reasonable but doesn't explicitly say that a code is required. --Dee Earley (talk) 11:44, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
True, and after surveying more at the weekend not all of them have a ref (some have ref and postcode, some just postcode, some neither). All say phone 999 though. A similar question was asked on the proposal discussion page without an answer, and the wiki page itself suggests access is a useful combination without suggesting any valid values. Perhaps something like access=keypad? taginfo reports 57 access=key tags, but I can't find anything similar for access=code or access=keypad or access=combination. I suspect I won't add any access tag locally as all those mapped require a code. If that changes I might have to reconsider. --EdLoach (talk) 13:49, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

emergency=defibrillator on iD editor

iD developers: This isn't a preset in iD editor so has to be tagged manually (which is cumbersome) - can it be added as a preset in iD so that they are easier to map? (Ideally would appear if either defibrillator or AED was searched for) Thanks --Lakedistrict (talk) 17:17, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

You may want to try posting your comment here instead. --Deanna Earley (talk) 23:02, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
