Hoover Fire Station No. 2 is a fire station for the Hoover Fire Department located at 1591 Patton Chapel Road. The original Station No. 2 was a 2500-square-foot building built in 1976 on Chapel Lane at Patton Chapel Road. At the end of April 2007, firefighters moved to a new, 6000-square-foot station just 300 feet away from the original station. The old station was demolished so that Preserve Parkway could be extended to a new four-way intersection at Patton Chapel Road and Chapel Lane.

As of 2007, twelve firefighters, three per shift, were assigned to the station, which was the maximum capacity of the original station. The current station can house up to ten firefighters per shift.
