Fair enough; certainly the management hierarchy of anything doesn't
belong on the map, and the emergency/office split (presuambly same for
fire/police) makes sense.

A further wrinkle is the secondary nature of facilities for disaster
response.  Around me, most things I'd tag as disaster_response have a
primary purpose with an expectation they'd be commandeered.  But if we
just add a node inside a building, that seems easy enough.
