History

The Dayton Firefighters Federal Credit Union first started as the Dayton (Ohio) Firemen Federal Credit Union in June of 1935 when the charter members, all fire department employees, applied for permission to organize and operate a Federal Credit Union. The field of membership, defined as "any active or pensioned employee of Dayton, Ohio, Fire Department and Department of Telegraph and Signals; employees of this credit union; members of their immediate family; and any association of such employees," remained consistent for over 68 years. In September 2003, invitation to experience our credit union difference expanded to employees of local fire departments and their families along with anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Montgomery County, Ohio. Increasing our radius even more in September of 2016, we now offer our membership benefits to the fire departments and supporting communities of Greene and Miami County.

Over the past 83 years, the Dayton Firefighters Federal Credit Union has grown into a full-service financial institution. From starting with only savings and loans, to adding checking accounts and debit cards, to most recently providing shared branching and modern electronic options for easy account access, your credit union continuously finds new ways to prioritize member convenience and accessibility. You, the members, are the reason for our growth and ability to help more of your friends and family. We exist solely for the purpose of meeting the financial needs of our members; you made us who we are today.

Q  Why are we changing our name?
 
A  The Dayton Firefighters Federal Credit Union wants to be around for another 83 years and beyond. Statistically smaller credit unions are being merged into larger ones. We want to be able to grow so we can sustain and be there for you, your children and grandchildren. The name Firefighters & Company is more inclusive of who we serve and is inviting to additional fire departments and the people and communities they protect. We will never forget our history and that the Dayton Firefighters started this credit union.
 
 
Q  Why did you choose the name Firefighters & Company Federal Credit Union?

The name Firefighters & Company Federal Credit Union was chosen because we serve firefighters and that is evident in our name and new logo that still contains the fire helmet. The "Company" is because a 'company' is not only a team of firefighters, it is also the people we invite into our homes. We wanted a name that will carry us into the future. This new name invites additional fire departments to the credit union, along with their friends, families,colleagues, and the communities that support them.
