You must first obtain a permit from the Jefferson County Health Department-Division of Air & Radiation Protection. Permits can be handled by phone calling 205.930.1276. Jefferson County charges $45.00 for residential permits and $70.00 for commercial permits. Once you have a permit from Jefferson County, you can complete a Hoover permit and bring or fax both permits to Hoover Fire Administration located at 2020 Valleydale Road. Once both permits are received by Hoover, a Fire Inspector will be assigned to make an appointment with you to visit the site. Following his site visit, your permit will be issued if compliance can be achieved. There is no cost from Hoover.
