NYFD Super Pumper

Quote:
From 1965 through 1982, the T-Rex of fire pumpers roamed the streets of New York City bringing with it massive firefighting power heretofore unseen on land.


The central pumping unit alone could draw water from eight hydrants at once, drop lines into bodies of water, supply a mind-boggling number of lines with water simultaneously, and flow over 10,000 gallons per minute at low pressures if the situation called for it. When the pressure was ramped up to 350 psi, it could move 8,800 gpm.
Since this is from a trade magazine I'm guessing most of the professionals are aware of this.

For the rest of us it is mind boggling.

I remember going to NYC Fire Department on a tour with our Volunteer fire company and see it before it was put in service. Quite a piece of equipment to be sure, We also toured the NYPD repair facility where the broken-down and accident trucks were repaired. If memory serves me corectly, there were near as many trucks wrecked in the repair shop as were on the street in service.
