Thanks, everyone, that's fine - keep it as 5 separate definitions, but, I
would think, all rendered the same ie  life ring?

For my own benefit though - lifeguard=place https://wiki.
openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag%3Aemergency%3Dlifeguard_place. Do those poor
sod's take their chairs down the beach & sit, extremely uncomfortably,
behind a woefully inadequate windbreak :-) *in the same spot* every day?

Our lifeguards do sit in their 4wd cars on the beach every day, but they
can position themselves anywhere over a several 00 m stretch, depending on
beach & surf conditions, & where the safest swimming spot is that day, so
they couldn't be mapped as a lifeguard=place.

I thought that that was what I was doing, but obviously not? To (mis-)
quote Oddball "I don't know how it works, I just use it"! :-)
