Albany Firemen’s FCU announces name change

The Albany Firemen’s FCU has announced that it has changed its name to NY Firefighters Bravest FCU. The change is in addition to a new TIP charter that will allow all New York state professional firefighters the ability to join the credit union. 

The credit union will be able to serve firefighters, which was its original field of membership, and an outreach program will begin with a new branch established in Manhattan.

“This opportunity will allow the FDNY firefighters to be served by a credit union that deals with the lifestyle and demands of firefighters,” said Renee Cowan, CEO/manager of NY Firefighters Bravest FCU. “The credit union’s 85 years of operating in the Albany area with three branches has given us the experience to open the new branch with our personal member attention and services that will meet the needs of our new members.”
