Hello everyone,

Which tags would you use for tagging lifeguard watch towers on
beaches? (as they are described here:

There's a discussion going on in the Brazilian community on which is
the best tag for this. Among the suggestions are:
- emergency_service=lifeguard
- health_facility:type=first_aid

Thinking from the point of view of applications (rendering and
geocoding), I kind of feel that this may be a health "amenity" similar
to amenity=doctors/clinic/hospital.

I wonder if this would also be a case of surveillance=outdoor +
