FAQ’s About First Bankers

What does First Bankers do?

First Bankers only finances fire trucks.  We specialize because fire apparatus leasing or loans have unique requirements.

If you miss even one key financial idea or one legal requirement, your department can waste tens of thousands of dollars or have issues with the IRS.

Why did First Bankers develop the exclusive FireLending Approach™?

We realized that most fire departments call up and ask the wrong questions and receive the wrong information to make a very important and large financial decision – about financing their fire truck.

Borrowing costs can easily equal the cost of the fire truck chassis.  It’ll certainly cost as much as a light tower or cascade system.

But fire departments lacked the experience to analyze this expensive cost.  So, the FireLending Approach™ was developed.  Fire departments can now be assured they have high quality information and knowledge to make an informed decision.

Aren’t you just like the other guys?

If we come across that way, we haven’t done a very good job of telling you how we’ve helped fire departments.  Our typical customer has more confidence in their financial decision, avoids common fire truck financing mistakes, and saves over $10,000.
