Just starting on the Roulette challenge (which is *much* slower than fixing
phone numbers!:-))

Just want to confirm please, that it should be:

Name=NSW Rural Fire Service (name)

branch=(name) Rural Fire Station - I've seen one so far that's listed as
Brigade, rather than Station - either / or or one or the other in

operator=NSW Rural Fire Service


name=Fire and Rescue NSW Station (number) (name)

branch=(name) Fire Station

operator=Fire and Rescue NSW


In regard to the Station number, does anybody know if the "station" shown
on the FRNSW site actually means that station, or is it only a random page
number? eg https://www.fire.nsw.gov.au/page.php?id=9210&station=24 - is
Batlow Station 24?

One thing I noticed with tagging the area as amenity-fire-station, is that
it defaults (at least iD does) to building=yes.

If you then add a driveway or similar, without deleting the building=key,
these will then error, as a driveway can't cross a "building"
