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.

During the month of October, we are partnering with the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) to promote Fire Prevention Month and help with volunteer recruitment across the Hudson Valley.  If you’re interested in learning more, stop by any of our branches or contact Joseph Rothrock, Fire & EMS Specialist, or Donald MacCormack, VP Municipal Banking.   Joe and Don are also both volunteer firefighters in the local communities they serve.
