I just have 2 questions.
1) Does a Police Chief have the authority to tell the Fire Chief that calls are to go to the police dept and respond before the fire dept.?
2) Does the Fire dept. have the authority to close a road down and/or detour traffic from a scene?
My family has been in the fire service for over 30 years and I have never heard of a police chief doing this before, so I am just wondering what you all think. FYI he is in the state of Maine.
