Could it be that they are now going to start replacing squads at 7 years like other special units ?

I know SQ1 got a new rig 4 or 5 years ago, so they wouldn't be up for a new one yet.

Word is they are for the 4 HMTU companies and the fifth is for SQ8 so they have a new rig.   There would then be a fairly new spare available in the 2014 the SQ8 currently has.

Correct, engine 165 did have a squad pumper for a little while already then it went to squad when they formed

Iím sure I missed it before, whatís the reasoning for the squad style trucks only being 1000gpm vs. the 2000gpm like the rest of the engines?

I think because the 2000 is larger and being that the squads are all ready longer they don't wanna add to that

Going back to 1000gpm from 2000gpm really doesn't make much sense, especially considering these units are dispatched the same as a conventional engine company would be. The actual size of the pump is not that great and not having every engine on scene has the same capacity could limit the scene commanders options. He would have to think about the pump capacity of a unit when assigning them a task. Cost would be another possible reason but again it's minimal compared to the overall price of the unit.

I would certainly like to hear the official reasoning for this.

I may be reading it wrong but the Ops Ref says only 2 handlines operate from one pumper, or if supplying a large caliber stream only one hand line.

THEY ARE DISPATCHED AS A REGULAR ENGINE ONLY AS 1ST, 2ND, OR 3RD DUE IN THE AREA AROUND THEIR QUARTERS. IT PROBABLY WOULD BE VERY RARE WHERE A CHIEF REQUIRED A UNIT SUPPLYING GREATER THAN 1000 GPM THAT EARLY INTO AN INCIDENT.
