First State Bank "Doing our part"
While we’re in unprecedented times, our customers can rest assured that their money will remain safe and accessible even in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak in this country.
Since 2007, when the H5N1 virus – or avian flu – spread throughout the globe, federal banking regulators have directed financial institutions to include pandemic planning as part of their overall business continuity plans. Specifically, our plan provides for a preventive program, a documented strategy scaled to the stages of a pandemic outbreak, a comprehensive framework to ensure the continuance of critical operations, a testing program, and an oversight program to ensure the plan is reviewed and updated.
While our lobbies are temporarily closed, we are still here to serve your needs.
Access to our lobbies will be on a case by case basis and is available by appointment only. If you find yourself in need of a service not provided at one of our drive thru locations, please call (903) 676-1900 to schedule an appointment.
Although coronavirus cases in our area are so far limited, we continue to monitor information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and are reinforcing best health practices in offices and branches.
We appreciate your patience in this difficult time.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) warns individuals to remain vigilant for scams related to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
