[Tagging] fire alarms

Hello.  I'm mapping the fire alarm boxes in my neighborhood, and I'm not
sure how to tag them.  Here's an example:

closest thing I can find in use is emergency=phone, but these are just
switches.  You pull the lever to summon help, but you can't talk to anyone.

My first guess would be emergency=alarm, but taginfo hasn't seen that.  Just
two of amenity=fire_alarm, one amenity=fire_alarm_box, and one
service=alarm.  Am I really the first one doing this or is there another
scheme I haven't thought to look for?
