The Safety of our Customers and Employees Comes First!

March 17, 2020

 

To Our Customers,

 
Over the past few weeks, we have seen how our community has been impacted by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. We continue to monitor the situation through the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and remain open with normal hours at this time. We do however recommend using online banking and mobile banking when possible. Future updates can be found on our Facebook and our Website
How To Help Your Community
 

With the announcement by Governor Jay Inslee yesterday, more than ever, our community needs support. Consider some of these as ways to make an impact locally.
  • Donate to your local food bank.
  • Offer assistance to at-risk neighbors.
  • Buy gift cards or order take-out from local restaurants.
  • Refrain from freezing your gym membership or asking for a refund for your cancelled event if you can do so.
  • Join your community Facebook group and join in the conversation with your neighbors to see how else you can help locally. 
Our Bankers Are Here To Help

There are many ways to reach out to us during this time. You can call us at 866-372-1200 or e-mail us at info at ffnwb dot com. Should you prefer to reach your local branch directly, you can find their number under our locations page or locate your business banker here.

Avoid Being Scammed

As a reminder, never share financial or other sensitive information with anyone who contacts you unsolicited. As your bank, we will never ask for private information over e-mail. Be cautious of clicking unknown links, especially from a source you do not know. Watch out for e-mails pretending to be the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) or online offers for remedies to treat or cure the coronavirus.
Flatten The Curve

The White House release guidelines called 15 Days to Slow the Spread. Some reminders include:
  • Stay home if you're sick.
  • Avoid social gatherings.
  • Work from home if you can.
  • Practice good hygiene such as washing your hands often, avoid touching your face, and sneeze or cough into your elbow. 
As always, thank you for being a loyal customer.
