The Waterloo Fire Department says the memory of a little boy will help them save lives.

WOWT 6 News got first look at the department's new rescue boat Thursday. It's named in memory of Aspen Seemann; he's the little boy who drowned in a lake near Waterloo last summer.

The boat will use special side-scan sonar technology to help in water rescues across the area.

The department purchased the boat using memorial funds donated in Aspen's memory.
