Blood Pressure Screening

Blood Pressure measurements are available to be performed at all Hoover Fire Department stations. Paramedics will measure your blood pressure and will record the reading on a card for a permanent record to be shown to your physician or other health care provider. We do not maintain records, it is the responsibility of the citizen to maintain the card given.

If you are in a non-emergency situation and are not having any symptoms to indicate blood pressure problems or any other medical problem, feel free to stop by your local station at most any time. Persons experiencing symptoms of high blood pressure complications or other medical problems should stay at home or your current location and call 911 for assistance. It may be dangerous to drive to a fire station with certain medical conditions.

Fire Stations respond to emergency calls and perform several duties outside of the fire station and may not be present when you come by. If no one is present at the station, please return at a later time and hopefully someone will be present to check your blood pressure. We apologize, but some emergency events are beyond our control and can not be predicted.

Emergency Phones are located at the main entrance of all stations if you do have an emergency and no one is present.

Car Seat Inspections

The Hoover Fire Department strives to ensure the safety of children by providing a Child Safety Seat Installation / Inspection Program.
The goal of this program is to teach parents / caregivers to properly install a child safety seat in a vehicle. This program is not intended to be an installation service, but a “hands-on” training session for parents / caregivers on proper installation techniques of child safety seats.  Any parent / caregiver that presents a disability, medical reason or age impairment that would prevent them from assisting with the installation process, will have the child safety seat installed without their participation.

Prohibited Circumstances: There are certain situations that will prevent HFD personnel from performing a Child Safety Seat installation / inspection, including:

  • when the history of the seat is not known
  • seat is damaged, excessively worn or missing components
  • lack of participation from parent / caregiver

Child Safety Seats can be Installed / Inspected at all Hoover Fire Stations between the hours of 10:00 am and 7:00 pm any day of the week. We prefer an appointment, but it is not required.

CPR Classes

The Hoover Fire Department is pleased to be able to offer CPR courses to our community and health care providers. These classes have proven time and again that they can and do save lives.

In an effort to ensure that individuals attend who sign up for class seats, our department requires that your $15.00 registration fee is paid up front.

The Hoover Fire Department offers American Heart Association CPR Certification Classes for the general public during the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Saturdays of each month. The classes are held at Hoover Fire Station 7 located at 100 Inverness Parkway (see directions in sidebar to the left of this page), which is off of Valleydale Road near Highway 280.
Please note that class size is limited and requires you to register for a class using our online system.  If you show up and are not registered, you will be denied the course that day. Also, if you register for the wrong class (i.e. you enrolled in Heartsaver and needed Healthcare Provider), you will receive certification for the class you registered for only!

For more information, contact the CPR Coordinator at, or by phone at (205)444-7683.

The program is free for any child or teen that needs help.

The Hoover Fire Department is proud to be a part of the Safe Place Community Program. Every fire station in the City of Hoover is designated a Safe Place site.

Yellow Dot Program

Hoover Yellow Dot Program

Alabama “Yellow Dot” Program Of Hoover

The “Yellow Dot” program is the first program of its kind in the state of Alabama. It is designed to assist Alabama citizens and first responders in the event of an automobile accident or other medical emergency involving the participant’s vehicle. The program can help save lives during the critical “golden hour” by improving communication at a time when accident victims may be unable to communicate for themselves.

The “Yellow Dot” program provides detailed medical information that can be crucial following a crash. Participants of the program receive a “Yellow Dot” decal, a “Yellow Dot” folder and an information form with the participant’s name, an identifying photo, emergency contact information, personal physicians’ information, medical conditions, recent surgeries, allergies and medications being used. A “Yellow Dot” decal on the driver’s side rear window of a vehicle alerts first responders to check in the glove compartment for the corresponding “Yellow Dot” folder. Having this information following a crash helps first responders positively identify the person, get in touch with family or emergency contacts and ensures that the person’s current medications and pre-existing medical conditions are considered when treatment is administered for injuries.

The “Yellow Dot” program is a free service provided to individuals of all ages, with an emphasis on senior citizens. The program is being funded by the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs/ Law Enforcement Traffic Safety Division (ADECA/LETS) and is being administered by the Northeast Alabama Traffic Safety Office. The “Yellow Dot” program is a cooperative effort of local Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, Emergency Medical Services, Senior Groups and concerned citizens in Alabama.
