Interesting that only two (2) of the Satellite Companies (9 Engine & 207 Engine) have HP pumpers.

  This looks like they are adding more High Pressure engines in areas with lots of new High Rise buildings like the Financial Center, Midtown, Upper West Side, Washington Hts, Coop City, Downtown Brooklyn & Brooklyn Hts., Greenpoint, and Long Island City. My question is: High Pressure Pumpers require a 3rd stage on the pump, special HP hose and HP discharges at the rear step area. Are these companies going to get new rigs? ???

There are still only eight three-stage (700 psi) “high pressure” pumpers – Engines 6, 8, 10, 26, 34, 54, 65, 258. Twenty-three standard two-stage (600 psi) engines now carry lengths of high-pressure hose, a 45⁰ angle discharge fitting, and are designated “high pressure engines." Those companies are Engines 1, 4, 7, 9, 21, 22, 23, 24, 40, 67, 76, 93 in Manhattan, 66 and 79 in the Bronx, 205, 207, 210, 221, 226 in Brooklyn, and 258, 259, 260, 262, and 325 in Queens

  OK, that makes sense. ;)
