I would never waste people’s time by writing a proposal for something so simple as a first aid kit.
Notifying the tagging list seems like more than enough process for introducing a new tag.

> Something? If that something is poor then is is not an accomplishment. 

You are calling my work poor?  Improve it then.
We’ve been talking about this tag for over a week.

> The value of 'first_aid' could be applied to a 'first aid room' ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_aid_room <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_aid_room>'

The tag is for first aid kits, not rooms.

> Most kits are portable, many of them are designed to be portable. are these included? No information on the OSMwiki page. 

Yes, same as emergency=defibrillator <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:emergency=defibrillator>  - they are portable but generally attached to walls.

> 73 is not a status of  'in use' !!!!

So change what it says.  

Thanks ,Bryan
