[talk-au] Fire Station Operators

I've updated the Australian Tagging Guidelines with NSW fire station

I'm proposing:

for NSW Rural Fire Service stations to use
operator=NSW Rural Fire Service

for Fire and Rescue NSW stations to use
operator=Fire and Rescue NSW

Does that sound okay?

I'm also suggesting to use the "branch=" tag to use the short name of the
fire station branch, which is usually the suburb name and is printed on the
fire trucks, since the regular name= tag could contain a longer signposted

For other states, if this tagging is okay, please help fill in the operator
and operator:wikidata tags on the wiki page for your states.

I've created a MapRoulette challenge for NSW to fill in these tags either
as implied from the name, local knowledge or from street lever imagery
