At Essex Bank, we are committed to working with our neighbors to improve the communities we serve, and we look for opportunities to do so every day. Recently, our consumer lenders came across one such opportunity.
The Trevilians Volunteer Fire Department, located in Louisa County, Virginia, was in need of new equipment to improve their ability to handle emergency calls, particularly vehicle extraction rescues. Following a thorough assessment of the County’s and the Department’s needs, the Department turned to Essex Bank to provide the necessary funding for their upgrade. With consumer lender Steve Seay and area executive George Longest facilitating the loan process, the Trevilians Volunteer Fire Department received financing to purchase and equip a heavy rescue unit.

The unit is capable of handling a number of different emergency situations and – with the addition of updated Jaws of Life tools – is readily equipped to help save lives at the scene of car or truck crashes.
Now that the Trevilians Volunteer Fire Department has completely equipped and lettered the unit, Heavy Rescue 6 is ready to serve the residents of Louisa County and those who pass through the county, particularly on heavily-traveled Interstate 64. The Essex Bank team was proud to work with the Trevilians Volunteer Fire Department on this initiative, and we commend the Department for their active role in helping their communities.
