Need to know if the Fire Pump Breaker needs to have a red handle.

No. NFPA 72 the National Fire Pump and Signaling Code only requires that the fire pump breaker be identified by a red label. The handle, breaker or lock-off attachment does not have to be red. See the attached article for more information.
