Congratulations are in order for Capt. Duane Prater being promoted to Battalion Chief today! He will assume duties of Battalion 1 on "A" shift.

A party was held at Station 4 today for Battalion Chiefs Neal DePiano and Jeff McAdams who retire at the end of the month. We wish them well as they start new chapters in their lives.

The Hoover Fire Department Technical Rescue Team (Alabama Heavy Rescue 5) is being deployed to Calhoun County, Alabama. Please pray for the safety of our personnel and hope that they find no loss of life during search and rescue operations.
Other crews from the metro area (Birmingham, Homewood, Vestavia Hills and Fultondale) have been deployed to the storm damaged areas as well.
The Alabama Mutual Aid System is a comprehensive plan to deploy necessary resources throughout the state, as requested and coordinated by state and local Emergency Management Agencies, during times of disaster. The system has been activated and help is on the way to the affected areas.

Today the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama presented a check for $950,000.00 to the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center to fund their efforts to end breast and other cancers! Again, the Hoover Fire Department and other Fire Departments in Alabama were a part of this fund raising effort.

Yesterday while doing fire extinguisher training with the employees at Homewood Suites in Riverchase, we made 3 new friends. Clay, Cole, and Kensi were visiting their grandparents who were staying at the hotel. Clay and Cole decided to join in on the training. Kensi was ok with just watching. We enjoyed making new friends. It made our day!

Operations Chief Rick L. Patterson retired as of August 1st. He spent 42 years in the fire service with 32 years of those with the Hoover Fire Department. Congratulations Chief Patterson!
