We are celebrating our 56th year – over five decades of serving firefighters in Joliet, Illinois. Our credit union has always been there for our members – not only in good times, but more importantly, in the toughest of times when our members need us most. Our products are simple; shares and loans, but our mission is far from simple. We are here to serve our members, and will never forget, not for a moment, why we are here. We have accomplished a great deal in our 56 years and remain steadfast in our focus and promise to improve the lives of our members.

Our foundation is not unlike other credit unions. We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative, chartered to serve our member-owners and governed by a volunteer board elected by the credit union’s membership. We follow the Credit Union Act and rules set forth by our regulator. We plan for tomorrow and train our board members. We are involved in the community and promote financial education. We reconcile accounts and keep impeccable records. We recognize that our credit union is not positioned to “do it all” but our credit union is strong, and based on our regulators’ findings – a safe and sound institution.
