As we continue to monitor developments regarding the coronavirus, First Bank recognizes that some of our customers may be negatively affected by the impacts of this global outbreak. Our focus continues to be the safety and well-being of our customers, employees and the communities we serve. We are committed to following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other public health agencies to help prevent the spread of illness in Alaska.



To slow the spread of the Coronavirus, we have closed all of our branch lobbies.  Although our lobbies are closed, we are processing all regular branch transactions through our Drive Through for our drive up and walk up customers. You can also withdrawal cash at our ATM, deposit funds through our Night Drop (processed daily) and access to your funds through our Online and Mobile Banking services. We are available over the phone to open an account, inquire about a loan or to set up an appointment to access your safe deposit box. Please call the phone number associated with your branch below.
