Hoover Chamber of Commerce Launches EatShopPlayHoover

The Hoover Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the launch of the website, EatShopPlayHoover. The site can be found at:
https://www.eatshopplayhoover.com/

That is where EatShopPlayHoover seeks to help. Residents can go to the site to order food to go, to shop online, to tip well, and most importantly to buy gift cards NOW for use at a later time. Gift cards equal immediate cash flow and cash flow is the lifeblood of our local businesses.

The Chamber encourages Hoover residents, visitors and supporters to visit the EatShopPlayHoover website today. In addition, if there is a business that is doing anything to benefit the public during COVID-19 crisis, they are asked to share that with the Chamber.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Rex Allred as well as his fire family at Oneonta Fire and Rescue Service.

It’s that time of year again. Don’t forget to Spring forward tomorrow and change your batteries!

⏰🔋⏰

How familiar are you with your smoke detectors? Did you know some are hardwired with battery backup, some have built-in 10 year batteries and others use regular consumer batteries such as AA or 9V? Did you know that these batteries should be changed at least every 6 months? Your smoke detectors are important life saving tools for you and your family and you should be familiar with them and maintain them. An easy way to remember to change your batteries is to do it each time you change your clocks for time change. #smokedetectorssavelives

This week Hoover Fire Department hosted a Rapid Intervention Crew (RIC) class. This class provides training to rescue our own firefighters when conditions deteriorate unexpectedly. We incorporate a RIC as part of our response to any structure fire, hazmat situation requiring hot-zone entry, dangerous technical rescues and any other high risk response as needed. We hope to never have to utilize the RIC but we will be ready if needed to rescue our own.
