More information about fire pumps:

A fire pump is designed to quickly deliver water to douse a fire before it has a chance to spread. When one of the sprinklers in the building detects a high level of heat, the power is automatically triggered, and the pump begins working immediately.

Fire pumps are commonly used in buildings whose upper floors are too high to be reached with the pressure of the local water supply.

Most are powered by either an electric power source or a diesel engine.
