Where I live it is common to talk about the emergency services.  We
even see it on road signs - things like "no turning except emergency
vehicles".  That means fire, police, ambulance, SES (State Emergency
Services), etc.  Usually each service has it's own locations, but not
far from me there's an area which has ambulances, fire engines and a
helicopter based - and it's called the "something emergency centre"
(can't remember who they called it after).

Tagging places where emergency services are based with an emergency
tag is not strange.

I agree- fire stations should be in the emergency tag as well  :)
