Fire corporations
§ 18. Fire corporations. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law,
the members of the Seneca Nation of Indians may establish fire
corporations to provide fire protection and related services upon the
Seneca Indian reservations, or any part thereof, subject to the approval
of the Council of the Seneca Nation of Indians. Such corporations shall
be formed pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Membership
Corporation Law, provided, however, that the consent of such Seneca
Council shall constitute the consent required by section 11.4 thereof.
Any such fire corporation shall have powers equivalent to those provided
by law with respect to like fire corporations or departments operating
outside such Seneca reservations, including without limitation, the
right to enter into contracts for the provision of fire protection
services outside the Seneca reservation, and its members and employees
shall be entitled to all of the benefits afforded under New York Law for
persons engaged in providing fire protection services.
