The Rockport Volunteer Fire Department has a new tool to help fight fires. A new pump has been installed on the city's police department patrol boat to help fight fires in canals, on boats, or homes.

The pump was purchased by the Rockport and Fulton Volunteer Fire Departments and others who wanted another line of defense.

This weekend, the fire department posted a video on their Facebook page of them testing the equipment and they say it worked out really well.
