Thanks for your help.

Sorry, that photo did not give a clear story.  Many of these boxes just have
a switch that calls the fire department.  No phone of any kind.

Some also have a locked phone that is accessible only to police.  This must
have been handy before they all carried radios, but it's hard to imagine
anyone using one now.  (At least, they say they contain for-police-only
phones, but I've never seen one open.)

The inaccessible police phone are interesting from a historical perspective,
but are not useful.  (Maybe include a note, but not a phone tag...)  As far
as emergency devices go, it's all about the fire alarm switch.

So I guess I will use
 emergency=alarm
and perhaps also
 operator=SF Fire Department

Would it be appropriate to add something to the wiki?  Proposed feature?
 Added to the list in Key:emergency?
