    Default New FDNY Satellite Pumpers Finished

    Just wondering from any guys at FDNY if you have seen the new pumpers yet. They look like they did a good job looking for some opinions on them.

    Just a note: Sattellites are NOT equipped with pumps. They are quartered with 2000GPM pumpers that traditionally supply the sattellites at fires.

    Why do they not have pumps? from the pic, it looks like they have a top-mount pump panel behind the cab. Thoes cabs do look small for a department like FDNY

    From jfTL41, whom I believe is a FDNY Jake?

    The satellites are not pumpers, they have no fire pump, basically a hose wagon for LDH, foam and manifold operations, they are housed with a engine companies who are assigned 2000 gpm pumpers, (soon to be standard for all companies).

    Nothing top mounted, what you see on the sides are the intakes to the deck gun.

    As for the cabs, they are secondary apparatus, they only need space in the cab for the driver, everyone else will be on the company's pumper/engine.
