When a Southern California Indian tribe was looking for a fire truck to bolster its growing fire department, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians recently stepped in to fill the void, donating its own department's used engine valued at $130,000.

Leadership members from the Cahuilla Band of Indians in Anza, California, visited the Chumash reservation in Santa Ynez in September to pick up their new vehicle, which the Chumash Fire Department originally purchased in 2007 for $350,000.
