Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I would like to add the address to some fire hydrants.

The online editor www.openstreetmap.org shows the follwing tags in the tag selection of emergency:fire_hydrant

fire-hydrant:street fire-hydrant:housenmuber fire-hydrant:city

but the wiki page for fire_hydrant https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:emergency%3Dfire_hydrant does not mention these tags (only the russian version of the wiki lists them under "Useful combination") and I did not see that they were used anywhere. Are there any country-specfic tags?

Is it okay to use these tags?

I find it very unlikely that any fire hydrants would have their own address. Even if they actually do in some areas, using the normal addr scheme would make the addresses more useful rather than a separate address tagging scheme that data consumers won't know about.

I am writing an app for firefighters. The app shows a list of the nearest hydrants (hydrant type, distance, flow-rate, address). The address is an important help to find the nearast suitable hydrant. When the app is used by a lot of firefighters than there will be much more hydrants with address tags.
