Does this mean the FDNY will now have a 14th TDA? Because 169 is losing there RMA? Or are there still even 13 left, using info from a 2017 Times Article.

What is the difference between a high pressure pumper and the standard 2,000 gpm pumpers ?

What is the difference between a high pressure pumper and the standard 2,000 gpm pumpers ?
Someone will correct me if I am off on any of this, but: FDNY has five general types of engines currently in circulation:
1) Some 1000gpm units, which are spares
2) Some 1000gpm units (with rescue-engine style bodies) assigned to the eight squad companies.
3) The current conventional engine assigned to front line companies is 2000gpm with a two-stage 600psi pump.
4) Among these, some are designated high pressure pumpers, which means they get assigned special equipment to pump at high pressures.
5) A select few engines are three-stage pumpers, which are also 2000gpm but can get to 700psi.

There are eight three-stage pumpers (mostly in Manhattan) and an additional 29 high pressure pumpers. The remainder of FDNY's engine fleet is the standard 2000gpm unit (or the 1000gpm unit for squads/spares). All engines have 500 gallon tanks. Also worth noting volume (gpm) and pressure (psi) aren't the same thing.

Sources: FDNY engine operations manual and the FAQ section of this site.

High pressure engines are 3 stage pumpers instead of the normal 2 stage. They also carry special hose for supplying standpipes in high rises

Per the operations manual, not all high pressure pumpers are three stage. Different categories. All three stage are high pressure, but not all high pressure are three stage.

all of the fdny 2000gpm engines are at least a 2 stage pump all can technically operate up to 600PSI but don't due to safety issues since you need special high pressure hose and discharges . many engines in high-rise areas have a standard 2000gpm/600psi engine with a high pressure hose and discharge (that is a heaver duty discharge then the standard ones) is put on one of the regular discharges , the high pressure engines 6,8,10,26,34,39,54,65,226,258 have a 3 stage 2000gpm/700psi pump , the high pressure hose and dedicated high pressure only discharges on the rear

The red hose with the white couplings. You see them on some high rise/ mega high rise” fires in Manhattan

Correct. All engines no matter what type can pump up to 300psi using the 3 1/2 anything above that needs approval from the Ic (bc or above ) and needs to use the red 3 inch high pressure hose and a saftey zone around the pumper and the hose is established

Probably the wrong thread, but was one of the ladders that responded to the Bronx fire last night was in a spare. Anyone know what company it was? I believe the spare is a 2001 Seagrave.
