Do we have any tagging scheme for “an area in which it is likely for a lifeguard to be”? I’m not sure if simply tagging an area with emergency=lifeguard lifeguard=place is appropriate for that.


 <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:supervised> supervised=* to indicate if the beach has a lifeguard (yes, no, interval - in the format of  <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:opening_hours> opening_hours=*) https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:natural%3Dbeach




Well, take as an example this beach: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/17960956


I don’t think a blanket supervised=yes or lifeguard=yes is appropriate for that.


But there are multiple areas, each maybe a few 100m, somewhere in which a lifeguard is going to put down their flags, beach chair, umbralla, whatever regularly.


So the question becomes, what’s the appropriate tagging scheme for these areas?
