N.Y. Indian Law Section 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.
