How Firefighters First is notified of a data compromise
Firefighters First receives information from multiple outside sources such as Visa® or law enforcement agencies. Due to the sensitivity of the information involved, detail specific to the breach is not disclosed to the credit union, so we are unable to provide the name of the merchant or where the data breach has occurred.
What to expect when a data compromise occurs
We understand that learning your account information may have been compromised can be an alarming experience. Important things to note if your card account data has been compromised:
- We may proactively close your card and reissue a new one in order to help protect your account
- It does not mean that fraud has occurred or will occur on your account
- It does not mean that you have become or will become a victim of identity theft
