Nope, no pumps on the satellites ever, trust me, anyone here who knows the satellites can confirm this... there used to be a 2000 gpm pumper that accompanied each satellite back when all the other pumpers were 1000 gpm... the new satellites and the old ones had / have no pumps, just plumbing and a huge deck gun. Maybe they can flow up to 5000 gmp through that huge gun / monitor.... all FDNY pumpers nowadays except the squads have 2000 gpm pumps, squads are 1000 gpm. Maybe check this link / thread >>> https://nycfire.net/forums/threads/satellite-units.58451/Yes the "old Super Pumper and Super Pumper tender was staffed by the members of Engine Co. 207, in Downtown Brooklyn, near the B'klyn end of the Brooklyn Bridge and near several major highways. The Satellites were and are staffed by the Engine Co. in which firehouse thay were/are quartered. Example Engine 9 in "China Town" has Satellite 1in Quarters and some additional manpower are assigned each Tour of Duty to staff both the Satellite and Engine 9. Also Ladder Co. 6 "The Dragon Wagon" one of only a few Tiller Aerial Ladders in the F.D.N.Y., is also in the same firehouse. Engine 9 has a new rig with, I have heard, a pump capacity of 2,000 GPM and the new Satellites have a pumping of 5,000 G.P.M. These New Satellites are the first normally assigned Satellites units that have any pumps, the old one were just "Hose Wagons: with Super Pumper 4.5"
latter 5" Hose. A Satellite almost always responds on any 2nd Alarm. Photos (Off Internet) Below of "New" 2021 Satellite (On Left), and "Old" Satellite (on Right) NOTE Hose Manifold on the Street In Front of the Rig.
