"We need to be able to talk to the other facility to understand what it is they are capable of doing," Cynthia Chiarappa, a hospital spokeswoman, said Sunday.

The hospital also said it would need to confirm there is "lawful transportation" included in any plan to transfer Jahi, and written permission from the coroner.

"This is not transferring an individual in a vegetative state, but a dead body."

Dolan did not return multiple messages seeking comment on Sunday, but said previously that the family views the New York site as it's "last, last hope."

Jahi underwent a tonsillectomy at the hospital on Dec. 9 to treat sleep apnea. After she awoke from the operation, her family said, she started bleeding heavily from her mouth and went into cardiac arrest.

Doctors at Children's Hospital and an independent pediatric neurologist from Stanford University have concluded the girl is brain dead.

The hospital wants to remove her from life support, but the family said they believe she is still alive.

Another hospital spokesman, Sam Singer, said Sunday in an interview with KRON-TV that Children's Hospital will facilitate a transfer if the family finds an outside physician to insert the breathing and feeding tubes needed to make it happen.

"We'll do our best, if it is within the confines of things that are legal and medically correct, to be of assistance to them," Singer said.

"At a certain point, they have to be able to look themselves in the eye and realize that this young lady is dead and is not coming back under any circumstances."

Protecting your home

Firefighters advise creating at least 100 feet of defensible space around structures.

Within the first 30 feet extending out from buildings:

- Remove all dead vegetation.

- Remove dead or dry leaves and pine needles from your yard, roof and rain gutters.

- Trim trees regularly to keep branches a minimum of 10 feet from other trees.

- Remove branches that hang over your roof and keep dead branches 10 feet away from your chimney.

- Relocate wood piles outside 30-foot buffer zone.

- Remove or prune flammable plants and shrubs near windows.

- Remove vegetation and items that could catch fire from around and under decks.

- Create a separation between trees, shrubs and items that could catch fire, such as patio furniture, wood piles, swing sets, etc.

- When clearing vegetation, use care when operating equipment such as lawnmowers. One small spark may start a fire; a string trimmer is safer
