Emergency Responders Credit Union was chartered on April 1, 1940, to create a credit union for firefighters. The needs of its sixty-three charter members were simple. Members deposited money in a savings account so that other members could borrow money. Depositors earned excellent dividends and borrowers paid low interest rates.
Since those early days, our membership and the services offered have grown. Emergency Responders Credit Union (ERCU) has continued our long history of serving members in the Winston-Salem community and beyond. Since our establishment as the Winston-Salem Firefighters Credit Union in the 1940’s, ERCU has consistently worked to meet the financial services needs of our members and their families.
As the community of first responders is tight-knit, so is the membership and staff of ERCU. With friendly staff and an inviting office, ERCU provides a physical environment different from a bank (and even large credit unions), not to mention the sense of relationship developed between members and our staff.
We want to be the first choice for you and your family when it comes to your financial needs. Call or visit us today!
