We share an uncommon bond with our Fire Family – a bond forged by trust and an unwavering commitment to each other.
As a Credit Union founded by firefighters and still 100% dedicated to firefighters, the Fire Family has embraced us as part of their community and honored us with a seat at their kitchen table for over 80 years. So when we say, "It's yours," we mean it literally. And it's something we never forget.
Attention to members' needs and expectations has enabled us to grow from just over 800 members the first year, to over 50,000 members today (969 fire departments), with current assets over $2.07 Billion. Legendary experience is more than a goal; it is our mission.
We have expanded our new member offers with the opportunity to receive a 0.75% rate bump on a share certificate! Our history started with Firefighters pooling their money in a cigar box to help rookies purchase their gear. Today we still hold that philosophy of "Firefighters helping Firefighters". By pooling our funds together, we can help all members of the Fire Family.
Enjoy the value of membership:
- 0.75% Rate bump on any share certificate2
- $100 when you open a checking account with direct deposit3
- 0.50% APR* discount on any fixed term loan4
- Receive a free Insurance check-up with Firefighter Insurance Services.5
