i need to add the jurisdiction boundaries of the fire brigades in the area i am working on, when i add the official boundaries, which tag should i use for their relation? Is fire_boundary=yes accepted?

If I were to add them I would add them as boundary relations with type=boundary, boundary=fire with no admin levels on the ways or relation, and no tags on the ways (except perhaps a note= to other users that the way is part of a relation).

It seems logical

First of all thanks for the suggestion. I will introduce the boundary=fire on wiki and at the tagging procedure i will add a note.

How can this boundary be verified by third parties? What is your data source and what license does it come under?

@Frederik I assume this is related to https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/44295/project-in-greece-disaster-management and also to the "capacity" question with the wrong license.
