Not sure if this is the right section to ask but I have a question about fire depts on indian reservations. Earlier today I got a call from a friend out in New Mexico. The smoke detectors were going off and she could not get them to reset. The reservation police stopped by but they couldnt do much. She called both of the reservation fire depts. and both told her unless there is fire or smoke they were not going to bother going out there. I asked if she called 911 or called the stations directly. She called the stations directly. My question is are they dispatched out from the 911 dispatch? Or do they have their own system? Personally I think they should have went. Thats part of the job description. Not every call involves something burning. Just looking for a bit of clarification on how they are dispatched and if calling 911 would have got her any further with them.
