First Responder Financing

First Responder Financing

We know it can be difficult for first responders to find financing for the gear, trucks and buildings you need to perform your lifesaving work—especially in smaller, rural communities. That’s why we’ve stepped up to help fire districts in the Hudson Valley in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Vermont. We understand the importance of investing in public safety by ensuring the viability and effectiveness of emergency services.

We invite you to contact a banker to discuss your organization’s financial needs. Or, if your organization is a nonprofit rather than a municipality, please review our information for Nonprofit Groups.  Joseph Rothrock, Fire & EMS Specialist and Donald MacCormack, VP Municipal Banking are both local volunteer firefighters and will be happy to assist you and your organization.
