Police Station / Fire Department

Use an Area Place and lock to at least Level 3. Set the name as defined for the types below, followed by the agency's abbreviation, so that Wazers will be able to easily identify the facility while using the mobile app. The agency abbreviation should be followed by the location name if that agency operates out of more than one location.

For purposes of being fully searchable by Wazers, add an alternative name for each facility, which uses the full common name for the agency, and also the facility's specific name or number as appropriate. Avoid the use of acronyms in the alternative name unless they are in common usage locally for that agency.

For administrative facilities where emergency units are not routinely stationed, use a Point Place, and set the name to the common name used by that agency for the facility.
