A building dedicated to a volunteer fire department - where they keep the truck and the hoses - is still land used by a structure dedicated to public Saftey. 

It may not be a giant police station or a multi-floor firehouse - yet all of them usually have dedicated land larger than building. 

If the community depends of them for fire protection services - they are the "fire department". 

I assume tagging for a fire station will have some kind of tagging to denote it's volunteer or irregular staffing situation.

Pulling them out of "landuse=governmental" seems to be a no-brainer, so making a tag for them would help more narrowly define landuse=governmental.
