First Bank Alaska Detailed Information

First Bank is a local bank that’s been serving Southeast Alaska since 1924. They know their community, its citizens, and its needs. At First Bank, they say “community first,” because they live here, work here, and play here.

Because your money is in a locally owned and operated bank, it stays in your community, funding the people and businesses that build your neighborhoods and help them prosper.

Their board of directors, along with bank management and staff, consistently deliver the kind of financial products and services that help our community grow. They make all their decisions right here, so their customers can get the answers they need when they need them.

For 96 years, First Bank has been in the business of helping people reach their financial goals. Much has changed since 1924, but the most important things about First Bank have remained the same: their commitment to providing competitively priced financial services and superior customer service.

This commitment continues today by combining efficient operations and modern facilities. With its Main Office in Ketchikan, First Bank is the only commercial bank with headquarters in southeast Alaska.

They are committed to supporting local non-profit organizations and participating in various local activities and events throughout the year. Stop by one of their branches today to learn more about First Bank.
