Frequently Asked Questions

Billing Questions

Note: Please call during regular business hours to speak to someone regarding a bill.

  • I received a bill that should have been paid by insurance! 
    Please call our billing company, Mediclaim Data Services,  (800) 953-9777.  Michael Sherry will graciously help you sort it out.
  • Why did I get billed for an ambulance if I did not get taken to the hospital?
    Arizona DHS requires billing for ambulance responses, regardless of transport. See the Medical Info page for more information.
  • Why did I get an ambulance bill at all! Doesn’t my property tax pay for that?
    No, it does not. It does cover you for fire protection if you live within the fire district.  More info can be found on the medical page.

Fire Related

  • Can I burn “xxx”…
    Open burning of paper, wood, and brush is allowed under strict regulations. An inspection and permit is required. Please see the Fire Info page.
  • Is my smoke detector working?
    Please check with the manufacturer of your specific detector. Generally though, there should be a button readily visible you can push to check your detector. Remember to keep fresh batteries installed, and if you are unsure, purchase a new one.

General Questions

  • What is Dolan Springs like? Where is Dolan Springs?
    Please see the Community page for local info.
  • Can I contact a Sheriff’s Deputy at the fire station?
    No. The Mohave County Sheriff’s office did at one time have a desk in an office at the fire station, but they have moved into an office at the Mt. Tipton School. If you see an MCSO vehicle parked outside the school, there is a deputy on the premises there. Please call the Sheriff’s Office directly (911) or 1-800-522-4312 for law enforcement issues.
  • Help! I have a snake in my house/yard!
    This is the desert and snakes are part of the landscape! Please see the community page for links if you need to educate yourself on snakes. We will respond and remove a snake from your house, free of charge (within the fire district), depending on personnel availability and time of day. Call 767-3300 for non-emergency snake calls.
  • Help! I have bees in my yard/garage/porch/tree/etc.!
    We offer some options if you have bees swarming somewhere on your property.  Depending upon availability of personnel, we will come to your residence and foam bees that pose a threat to life. The best time to do this is early morning or late evening when the bees are not active. Note that we generally will only make one attempt at hive eradication, and further problems should be addressed by a professional pest control service. Please call our business line (928-767-3300) for this non-emergency service.
