I like the distinction between marine and water, since lifeguards mostly
just deal with swimmers near shore and water police, marine rescue go
further out and respond to incidents with water craft.

At least for now the three lifeguard tags, emergency=lifeguard_base,
emergency=lifeguard_tower and emergency=lifeguard_platform are all well
defined, so at least in the near term we should keep using them.
