    Default Satellite Truck

    I was just looking around cnyfiretrucks.com I was looking at various department's apparatus and decided to take a look at FDNY's pages.

    I came across their Satellite truck. And to figure out what exactly it did, not only did I do a search on here, but through a basic search engine, and came up with nothing. It looks like it pumps at least.

    Can anyone give me an idea what this truck does?

    There are six satellite units, they are unstaffed apparatus, operated by the engine co that houses them (engine co's 9,72,159,207,284,324). They respond on 2nd alarms and 10-75's (in remote areas such as Riverdale in the Bronx.
    These units are hose wagons with no pump (the engine that houses and operates the satellite is assigned 2000 gpm pumper and always has a second chauffer on duty). They carry 3000 feet of 5" hose, large quanities of foam and related equip. as well as manifolds for supplying numerous handlines remote from a pumper. The satellites also feature a 5" deck pipe and two smaller deckpipes.
    They were I believe originally part of the Super Pumper System and are the only remaining components.

    I did a search on here and all I came up with was World of Fire, that daily report on alarms and such. Perhaps I didnt search all that effectively?

    None the less, my question was answered, thanks!

    WHEW ! I was wondering how the space shuttle was going to get them into orbit!
