About US


Fresno Fire Department Credit Union was formed in 1935 by Captain Richard "Pappy" Hicks and the other 107 Fresno City firefighters. Each member paid a fifty-cent membership fee in order to establish a state charter. Captain Hicks originally used the Lieutenant's quarters upstairs at Station 4 as his office, as well as traveled to the other stations to conduct transactions. Over the past several decades, the membership eligibility has been expanded to include firefighters and their families from Fresno, Madera, Merced, Mariposa, Kings, and Tulare Counties and we now have a permanent location. While the credit union continues to grow, we maintain the same commitment as the original 108 members-to serve firefighters and their families. Our Board of Directors, Supervisory and Credit Committee members are all active or retired fire personnel who volunteer their time to ensure that the needs of the membership are met.

Membership Eligibility

The following persons or organizations are eligible for membership in the credit union:
